In their starred review Library Journal says,
"New York City is gripped by anarchist riots and bombings in the fall of 1906. One bombing goes horribly awry, a child is killed, and the arrested young suspect endures the wrath of the city. On the eve of his trial, the presiding judge is murdered in his home, with a Bible under his hand and a white rose next to his corpse. [...] Pintoff is at the top of her game in this third entry in her Edgar Award–winning historical series (IN THE SHADOW OF GOTHAM; A CURTAIN FALLS). Hand sell to readers who still talk about Caleb Carr’s THE ALIENIST. Suspenseful and overlaid with symbols, ciphers, and early psychological study—a real winner."
They even had a special note in their mystery section that showered some love on a few more of our series authors:
"Three authors on their third series entry—Cassandra Clark, Sophie Littlefield, and Stefanie Pintoff—just keep producing great new stories. Be sure to get the back titles if you’ve missed them." Hear, hear!
