"Has the style, verve, and all-around insouciance of Elmore Leonard.... A tale fast and funny". -- The Arizona Daily Star on Devil's Food"Packed with humor, great dialogue, and real people on both sides of the law, this looks like a winner". -- Booklist, Starred Review, on Devil's Food"Readers will, pardon the expression, eat this up. The plot crackles and so does the dialogue". -- Publishers Weekly on Devil's Food"A divertingly comic entertainment with a bittersweet bite.... Fine escapist fare from a pro only a cut or two below the out-of-sight-standards set by Carl Hiassen". -- Kirkus ReviewsParole officers Loretta Kovass and Frank Marvelli have a big problem. They've been ordered to find hit man Sammy Teitlebaum before Sammy kills mob turncoat Gus Rispoli, who's tucked away at My Blue Heaven, the Witness Protection Program's top-secret prison.The bad guys don't anticipate the tenacious efforts of Loretta and Frank as they travel to Seattle to find Sammy and stop him. They also don't count on having to deal with Loretta, who's decided to quit coffee cold turkey just as they hit Java City."Exciting....The story line is fast-paced and the dialogue is classic Joisey.... Fans will plead with Anthony Bruno to start a series starring Frank and Loretta". -- Harriet Klausner on Devil's Food
