“Fulmer is both a fine plotter and a marvelously evocative writer
with an eye for character. ”
    — The Washington Post Book World

“David Fulmer’s evocative prose captures the sights,  sounds, and
smells of 1913  Storyville in his superior ‘Lost River.’”
                                            — USA Today Online

“The atmosphere Fulmer creates is rich, nuanced, and authentic.”
                                     — Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“Valentin’s fourth case immediately draws the reader into its tapestry  
of the Big Easy in a memorable bygone era.”
                      — Kirkus Reviews

“With his usual lucid prose, Fulmer details the grubby ‘crib’ life that
exploited scores of women prostitutes while padding rich men’s wallets.
Those looking for some jazzy early 20th- century chills won’t be disappointed.”
                                                          — Publishers Weekly

“[Fulmer’s] feel for atmosphere and his increasingly subtle hand with
character development keep the series from going stale . . . Early on,
this series’ main appeal was its setting, but now it can hold its own with
the most character-driven of historical mysteries.”
                                                                     — Booklist

“Fans of hard-boiled writers like Raymond Chandler, Bill Pronzini, and James Lee Burke
will enjoy Shamus Award winner Fulmer’s latest.  Highly recommended.”
                               — Library Journal

“Although I tend to avoid period mysteries, I make a happy exception for David Fulmer's
Valentin St. Cyr novels, set in New Orleans in the rough and tumble days shortly before
World War I. Fulmer won the Shamus Award for Best First PI novel for “Chasing the
Devil's Tail.” Four books later, he still displays the fine form that originally caught the
judges' attention.”
              — Bookpage

“The richness of Fulmer's integration of emotional, criminal and historical elements
makes his mystery writing as compelling and original as the best in detective fiction. St.
Cyr takes his place alongside Harry Bosch and Dave Robicheaux: gripping, visceral, and
above all, human.”
