= Hear the authors on NPR Weekend Edition with Scott Simon!

“It's a really funny way to tell a tale, and it works gloriously.”

“It's loads of fun ... just go with it.”

“Clear the calendar, call into work, and hire a sitter—you've got a book to read and it deserves your full attention.”

“The duet of Lutz and Hayward make beautiful music. Sick and twisted, but beautiful.”

“A complete delight!”

“Pure comic genius.”

“A witty and engaging crime novel.”


“It's a blast.”

“This is one deliciously wicked, funny book.”
