"An amusing take on Native American gambling emporiums (with wry asides on the foibles of home remodeling), but most readers will feel short-changed when the plot deflates with one humongous trick too many."
"So many kinfolk and quaint-tongued residents that you might confuse this with a southern novel. The ending is a bit of a cheat, but if you prefer your mysteries small, insular and chatty, Daheim (The Alpine Quilt, 2005, etc.) is your gal."
"So-so, but if you favor middle-aged amateur sleuths (Saks and Violins, 2006, etc.) bickering their way along drafty corridors and you have a wee dram of a single-malt at your side, you might be amused."
