Advance Praise for Poppy Redfern and the Midnight Murders:
“Arlen deserves several thumbs up for this one. . . along with capturing the ambiance of the era, Arlen also has the
gift of keeping the reader guessing. Just as one likely suspect steps to the fore, another pushes him or her
out of the way. A fine start to a new series. ” Ilene Cooper — Booklist. Read full review here
