"A witty spoof...Klavan gleefully slices and dices every known speciman of the Hollywood film trade...Worth its weight in popcorn."
--Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

"Highly entertaining...Klavan knows his turf...Sure to put a smile on any movie buff's lips."
--Leonard Maltin

"Brimming with engaging tidbits of movie trivia...This tongue-in-cheek whodunit marks the long overdue second coming of a gifted novelist."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A lightning-paced, high-concept thriller...Astonishingly inventive...One of the best mysteries of the year!"
--Tess Gerritsen

"Something completely different...What a relief to read a murder mystery that does not feature a bullet-munching, tough-as-nails cop or private detective and a dame to kill for..."
--Cleveland Plain Dealer
