Review quote

"The mystery of a headless corpse . . . brings insight to the puzzle of human behavior." --"The New York Times Book Review ""Foreboding. . . . A number of crime writers try to explore morality and motivation. . . . Nesser achieves more than most." --"Deseret News ""Every bit enjoyably creepy as his previous offering." --"Entertainment World ""Mystery fans should rejoice." --"Richmond Times-Dispatch"
