Edinburgh Review
This is a superior piece of detective fiction, written in simple, direct but effective prose.

John Leland, Femaledetective.com
Where 'The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency' was brilliant, 'Tears of the Giraffe', the second in the series is sublime.

Will probably find a home for this one rather than reading it....

Picked it up on Bookcrossing stall at Mozfest (Moseley Festival)in July. Held on to it till I'd read the first one in the series and then took it on camping holiday in Scotland. Enjoyable read but wish the books were longer. Released it back into the wild in a bus-shelter in Gairloch, Wester Ross. Looked a few hours later and it had gone! Really excited as it was my first release! I'm about to look through my bookshelves and see what other books I could release and am encouraging my 13yr old daughter to do the same.

Journal Entry 6 by flyfishergirl from Ripon, North Yorkshire United Kingdom on Sunday, September 4, 2005
I was on my annual camping trip to Gairloch and a week before had read about Bookcrossing.com. As an avid reader I thought I'd check out the site on my return home but saw this book sitting in the bus shelter and nearly flipped when I realised what I'd found! I really never thought I'd find a book. I am reading it now and enjoying it as it's not a book I would have gone for normally. When I've finished it I will release it and probably send out a few of my own.
