Reviews

  • The Last Madame “Christine Wiltz has done a remarkable and rare thing: she has captured perfectly the essential, earthy complexity of the most fascinating city on this continent. The Last Madam is an exhilarating mardi gras of a book.”

    Robert Olen Butler, author of Pulitzer Prize winner,A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain

  • The Killing Circle“A well-made, Chandler-type private investigator caper.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • A Diamond Before You Die “New Orleans-style vice, corruption, and political shenanigans are what it’s all about. Add the carnival atmosphere of Mardi Gras, several grisly murders, and former cop turned private investigator Neal Rafferty, and the result is a highly volatile concoction.”

    The Armchair Detective

  • Glass House“It is the painful and unflinching honesty with which Wiltz confronts the issue of crime and fear of crime that give her novel its strength and power….A novel that needs to be read on both sides of Convent Street.”
