Book by Dunning John


United Press International Very credible...An involved tale that satisfies the mystery reader's wants.

"St. Petersburg Times" (FL) A perfect mystery. It's intelligently written; the action is bafflingly logical; the reader learns something, and it's got a sucker punch of a finale.

"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) Crisp, direct prose and nearly pitch-perfect dialogue enhance this meticulously detailed page-turner.

"Mystery Scene" Memorable...Compellng...Vivdly realistic...Fascinating and utterly convincing...A suspenseful, well-crafted mystery that should keep readers guessing right up to the closing paragraph. This novel, friends, is a keeper.

"Boston Sunday Globe" I unabashed admirer of John Dunning's "Booked to Die." No one...can fail to be delighted by the sort of folkloric advice Janeway carries with him.

"New York Times Book Review" A joy to read...[A] whodunit in the classic mode.

"The Philadephia Inquirer" A standout piece of crime fiction...Compelling page-turning stuff.

"The Plain Dealer" (Cleveland) Irresistible....An outstanding novel.

"The Denver Post" A knockout....One of the most enjoyable books I've read in a long time.

"San Francisco Chronicle" Fascinating...Assured and muscular prose...Very cannily and creepily, Dunning shows how quiet men with civilized tastes can turn into killers...The payoff, in pleasure, is for the reader.
