The first Stanley Hastings mystery I read was the fourth book in the series Strangler. I loved it and quickly went back and read the others and I haven’t missed another one in the series which is now at seventeen! Scam is book 12 in the series. According to Parnell’s Facebook post ” SCAM, my best reviewed private eye novel (raves in PW,Kirkus, NY Times)”
Smart dialogue, clever plotting and a perfectly executed reverse scam by Hastings result in sparkling entertainment. – PW
As usual, Hall (Trial, 1996, etc.), like Rumpelstiltskin, takes slender material that would serve another writer for a middling short story and spins a gossamer web of riddles by turns puzzling, suspenseful, and hilarious.- Kirkus
