"Allan Levine's Winnipeg bursts with civic pride, simmers with political and police corruption anda seethes with racial tension. It smells of chicken soup, cigars and opium. Its residents live out their lusty lives on the snow clogged streets…History, told through lively characters and washed down with side dishes of seances, suffragists and sex, and the suspense of a good whodunnit." —Winnipeg Free Press
"When we first met Winnipeg investigator Sam Klein, it was 1911 and he had just ferreted out the truth behind the "Blood Libel"…Now Klein is back in a better book with a tighter plot…" —Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail
"By the first page and half I was hooked!" —Lethbridge Herald
"This is one of those rare novels that manages to both entertain and instruct. There are several credible and complex mysteries embedded in the story and their solutions are embellished and augmented by a wealth of historical, social, and local detail." —Quill & Quire
