Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine
"Just dandy: a grower here, to be followed."
"Kelly is a gutsy broad in the proud tradition of gutsy broads. Burke has a nice feel for people and how they talk, get along and hurt one another. The book is a good read. It's likely you'll be hearing more about Irene Kelly."
Dayton Daily News
"[Burke] captures the atmosphere, the stress, the rivalry, the camaraderie and most of all the unique humor of the newsroom very well. And best of all, she writes an exciting, well-plotted, edge-of-your-seat mystery."
