"Elegantly rendered in a kind of high literary pastiche, Good
Murder is a brilliant debut." -- Graeme Blundell, Weekend
"The storyline and characterisation make this a highly original piece of crime fiction . . . What I liked most about Good Murder was its language and humour . . . the dialogue is funny and pithy." -- Ed Wright, Sydney Morning Herald
"This is an intriguing, amusing and well-constructed parody whodunit debut." -- Winsor Dobbin, Sun Herald
