Review quote

Phillipa is a great writer and she has the inside scoop on the world she's writing about. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next. "Carrie Vaughn, bestselling author of the Kitty Norville series on This Case is Gonna Kill Me" John Grisham meets "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."... A fast, fun, furious read. "M. L. N. Hanover, author of The Black Sun's Daughter on This Case is Gonna Kill Me" A fresh take on both urban fantasy and the classic legal thriller. An intelligent, gripping debut! "Jaye Wells, author of the Sabina Kane series on This Case is Gonna Kill Me" Fresh and exciting... A great new voice in urban fantasy. "Cathy Clamp, USA Today bestselling author" Strong storytelling, appealing characters, and an intriguing setting make this urban fantasy series opener likely to have great appeal to the genre's many fans. "Library Journal (Starred Review; Debut of the Month for August 2012) on This Case is Gonna Kill Me" Linnet's modus operandi--using the law instead of magical weapons against supernatural peril--is a refreshing change of pace. . . . The clever, active protagonist makes this a lively and enjoyable read. "Publishers Weekly on This Case is Gonna Kill Me" A refreshing new take on an old idea, with a strong, intelligent and independent protagonist: a highly promising debut. "Kirkus Reviews on This Case is Gonna Kill Me""
