Outstanding . Hambly's masterful historical detail, scrupulous character portrayal, and psychological analysis of human frailties contribute handsomely to her storytelling. This long-running series shows no signs of losing steam * Publishers Weekly Starred Review *
In Hambly's expert hands, New York is a dark, threatening place, in many ways a foreign land to January . Hambly lays bare the dark underbelly of American society in the mid-nineteenth century. A fine entry in an impressive series * Booklist *
A fascinating, sadly timely tale of the hero's struggles with his rage over the treatment of Black people * Kirkus Reviews *
A stark and occasionally brutal story, and Hambly tells it superbly, in prose that is vivid and empathetic. For fans of this fine series, this is a must-read * Booklist Starred Review of Lady of Perdition *
A riveting exploration of a little-known period of Texas history intensified by gut-wrenching depictions of people's enduring inhumanity * Kirkus Reviews on Lady of Perdition *
Deeply researched . . . Hambly's well-wrought denunciation of slavery and her skillful defense of women's rights resound from January's times to our own * Publishers Weekly on Lady of Perdition *
An atmospheric, beautifully written mystery * Kirkus Reviews on Cold Bayou *
