"A fast-paced whodunit, Lawson’s recent installment
in the Scott Drayco mystery series ... contains enough pleasantly unexpected surprises and meticulous details to deliver a fresh mystery ... Lawson's protagonist is also greatly compelling."
"This labyrinthine novel is great for those who love to be as intellectually frenzied as the detectives in the stories they read. They’ll be eagerly flipping back to look for Lawson’s strategically placed clues."
"Lawson uses the gothic features of the abandoned Opera House to great effect, creating an atmospheric background for the crimes and the solving of them, all of it accompanied with music that’s almost like another character. The pace never sagged and it kept me enthralled."

Long and Short Reviews
"Lawson’s book was so good, I read it twice from beginning to end...The citizens of Cape Unity are as diverse and multi-layered as any person living in the large cities, and Lawson portrayed them splendidly."
