"Those of us who worship Sue Grafton and her Alphabet Series of mysteries starring Kinsey Millhone have gone into pre-mourning, as the end is nigh: W IS FOR WASTED came out a year ago, and Grafton’s got only three more letters to get through. And then it’s over. Argghhhhhhh! 

Let us praise the literary gods, then, that a worthy successor has arrived with Austin author Minerva Koenig and her debut novel, the funny, scary and devilishly twisty NINE DAYS."

Joy Tipping, Dallas Morning News

"NINE DAYS announces a great new voice in Minerva Koenig. The story sweeps in like a southwest breeze, dry in wit and hot in attitude."

Scott Montgomery, MysteryPeople

"The mystery itself twists and weaves like a drunken snake. You’re never quite sure what will come next, which makes you turn each page at a rapid-fire pace, breath bated."
