"It's winter in an upstate mill town in 1961, and Ellie Stone is at it again: fighting injustice, indifference, and bigotry in this pitch-perfect antidote to nostalgia. The characters are flawed and absorbing, the mystery is clever but convincing, and the pain of grief and loss catch you in the throat along with the wet wool, stale smoke, and whiskey. Tremendous."
--CATRIONA McPHERSON, Anthony, Agatha, Macavity, and Bruce Alexander Award-winning author of the Dandy Gilver series and Come To Harm
"Smart, sassy, and masterful. Ziskin's Ellie Stone series gets better with each book."
--BARRY LANCET, award-winning author of Japantown and Tokyo Kill
"Stone Cold Dead draws you in with its rich, seductive prose portraits. Ziskin's masterful, suspense-driven storytelling keeps you turning pages as fast as you can."
--JEFFREY SIGER, international bestselling author of Sons of Sparta
"It might seem that she can hold her liquor more easily than she can hold onto a byline, but, in her third outing, whip-smart, dogged reporter Ellie Stone confirms she can certainly hold her own when it comes to the men who run every institution she encounters. In this dark, well-paced drama, the engaging Stone excavates disturbing facts about the life of a missing teenaged girl. The challenging theme is well served by its noir style and crackling dialogue. Revel in the early '60s nostalgia, but throw away the rose-tinted specs."
--CATHY ACE, author of the Cait Morgan Mysteries, and the WISE Enquiries Agency Mysteries
"Ziskin's whodunit Stone Cold Dead has more twists and turns than an upstate New York back-county road. Ellie Stone is the kind of gal you'd want to share a malt with . . . or a fifth of Scotch."
--MATT COYLE, Anthony Award-winning author of Yesterday's Echo and Night Tremors
"Ziskin's...smart and aggressive protagonist has real personality.... Don't miss this series."
--Library Journal STARRED REVIEW (for No Stone Unturned)
