JUDGING by the fifth novel to feature the battered but unbowed paparazza-on-parole Nina Zero, Robert Eversz's highly original noirish series has come to a conclusion of sorts... Since it's impossible to even hint at the book's ending without spoiling its effect let's just say it's one of the strangest resolutions I can recall in more than two decades of reviewing -- happy and sad and bizarre and totally satisfying. This shouldn't come as a complete surprise to anyone familiar with the ingenuity Eversz has displayed in this series. He has, after all, created a unique narrator-protagonist who observes Southern California's fault lines, and her own, with a cynic's eye and a satirist's tongue, and whose language and style are on the cutting edge of hip.
// Dick Lochte, Los Angeles Times

"Eversz hits the jackpot in his fifth Nina Zero mystery as his Hollywood tabloid photographer with the unsavory past confronts various challenges and emerges irrevocably changed but still standing...This compelling, nerve-wracking, draining novel will leave readers hungry for the next."
// Publisher's Weekly, Starred Review

Nina's terse, tough-girl patter is irresistible, and her street-smart, humorous take on love and life makes for addictive reading.
// Joanne Wilkinson, Booklist

"Nina's addictive escapades grow in depth and complexity, with mystery on the side."
// Kirkus
