Praise for Under Suspicion: A Friday Barnes Mystery :

"Spratt continues to hit just the right mix of dry humor and suspense. Her characterization of her protagonist shines . . . Readers know that, like Sherlock Holmes, Friday will solve every mystery; the book's fun is in seeing how she does it . . . A cliffhanger ending will have readers drumming their fingers as they wait for the next episode." -- Kirkus Reviews

"[For] readers who like humor but also want more intelligent characters and jokes, as well as those who like quirky mysteries." -- Booklist

"This second book in the Friday Barnes series is even funnier and quirkier than its predecessor." -- School Library Journal
