Review

Advance Praise for "Blood Orange "

"In the overcrowded world of private eye fiction, "Blood Orange" hits the reader like a fresh breeze off the Pacific Ocean--make way for Jaymie Zarlin, patron saint of lost children, lost dogs and lost causes!" --Craig Johnson, author of the Walt Longmire Mysteries, the basis of A&E's hit series, "Longmire
"
"An impressive debut with echoes of Sue Grafton and Ross Macdonald that features appealing characters, a twisty plot, buried family secrets, and a coastal Southern California backdrop saturated in color and light." --Denise Hamilton, author of "Damage Control" and editor of Akashic's "Los Angeles Noir"

"Keskinen is an observant, inventive writer, and she's given us a page-turning mystery of the west . . . Her smart, tough protagonist specializes in tracking down the missing, but finds instead a town's ugly and tangled secrets." --Hector Tobar, Pulitizer Prize-winning journalist for "The Los Angeles Times "and author of "The Barbarian Nurseries

""A sharply written debut with a warm heart. Keskinen paints her California setting in fresh and vivid colors, and gives us a book that fits squarely into the PI tradition while shining a new light. Long life to this series!" --S.J. Rozan, Edgar-winning author of "Ghost Hero"

"Keskinen has launched a promising soft-boiled debut, one that definitely fits into the Sue Grafton mold. Her fiercely independent PI meets her challenges head-on, making the pages fly by."

--"Library Journal"
