Praise for R. Michael Phillips-
Passage Of Cirime . . . This is a very well written mystery with very well drawn characters. It is a series you are going to want to follow. Now you will excuse me while I go back and start it from the beginning so I will be ready when the 4th in the series comes out!

Rook, Rhyme & Sinker . . . The storyline involving the mystery of a carved ivory rook's origin -- and of its owner's death -- is cleverly devised, and uses as its foundation the real Lewis Chessmen. There is also a considerable amount of good humor included. This is a series that definitely deserves a wider audience.

Along Came A Fifer . . . is an utterly charming book. It is written in such a way that, if not for modern references like the cell phone and the Eurostar, it seems to take place in late 19th century England. The characters and their manner of speaking, the description of buildings and locations, even the cadence of the narrative, all evoke a Victorian, at times Holmesian, style. It's really quite remarkable.
