"Riveting . . . exquisite, absorbing. . . . The Murder Room possesses everything we desire, no, long for, from James."

——The Miami Herald

"Riveting. . . . The Murder Room possesses everything we desire from James. . . . [Her] lovely, clear prose travels at a stately pace, never cluttered by random violence or unnecessary characters, taking us where we need to be with assurance, intelligence and grace. No word or action is wasted; everyone and everything matters."
