Críticas:

The hero is a unconventional small-town Virginia sheriff named Ike Schwartz. His wife, Ruth, is cut from a different cloth, too. She's a college president fond of talking about her lingerie and making sheetmusic. The book begins when a car bomb explodes, and we learn what series followers have known all along: Sheriff Ike is a former CIA spook, crammed with dark skills. The search for the car bomber begins with Ike's colleagues at the Picketsville, Virginia, sheriff's office and widens to include FBI suits and Ike's raffish former CIA pal, Charlie. The detective plot is engrossing, and confrontations and assassinations make up the liveliest part of this uneven novel, almost carrying it past yards of windy sentences and a married couple's bantering that isn't as witty as it's meant to be. When the evil mastermind is paralyzed below the neck, we get a disquisition on the difference between tetraplegic and paraplegic. "Imagine the potential damage to our youth mixing our classic languages could have." Nick and Nora wept.--Don Crinklaw "Booklist "

The basic story flows smoothly, with parallel themes of terrorism and child abuse. Ike, and his wife, Ruth, are delightful characters, and Ike's CIA friend, Charlie Garland, proves as resourceful as ever.--Theodore Feit "Midwest Book Review "
