"An enjoyable tour of 1890s New Orleans... Twain can take a bow for his perfomance. Heck takes a colorful city (New Orleans) an a colorful character (Mark Twain), adds a murder, a duel, some voodoo and period detail and conjures up an entertaining sequel to Death on the Mississippi." -- Publishers Weekly

"A period charmer..." -- Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine

"This Crescent City mystery simmers." -- Booklist

"The second of Heck's Mark Twain detective novels is a charming winner." -- Ed's Internet Book Review

"Exciting." -- Book Alert
