If you haven’t already discovered this terrific series set in the Hamptons on the eastern tip of Long Island, there’s no better book to begin with than Short Squeeze. This is a great late-summer weekend book.
—The Globe and The Mail
Southampton attorney Jackie Swaitkowski, a supporting character in Knopf’s Sam Acquillo series takes center stage in this series debut. Readers, fasten your seatbelts for a roller-coaster ride as Knopf’s intelligent, savvy protagonist works her wiles solving whodunit and why.
– Library Journal, Starred Review
Knopf’s well-layered plot is particularly laudable for the fact that, although its puzzle pieces become evident, fitting them together is challenging. Ms. Swaitkowski proves up to that challenge. She may do her best work under a smoky haze of sometimes questionable origin, but she’s a breath of fresh air on the mystery-novel scene.
