Two Stars for Two in-house Faves!

Both Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Reviews gave Tiger,Tiger starred reviews calling it "gut wrenching" and "a gripping, tragic and unforgettable chronicle of lost innocence."

The Brothers of Baker Street received starred reviews from Booklist and Publishers Weekly. Booklist said, "Sherlock Holmes isn’t back, but Dr. Moriarty is, sort of, in this delightful romp that offers more tension and suspense than a dozen fat thrillers with bloody knives on the cover. It still manages to be funny, rather in the Kingsley Amis manner."
