Praise for Dead Frog on the Porch
“Shady scientists, fraudulent frogs, and two terrific twins add up to a delightful mystery. Cynthia and Jane are fearless in their quest to end ‘crimes against amphibians.’ This story is full of outsized characters, outrageous creatures and a sweet goofy humor that propels each page. Tons of fun!”
–Teresa Toten, Governor General Awards nominee 2001; Governor General Awards finalist 2006
“Readers who enjoy a good laugh and a good mystery will devour this uproarious, fast-paced story in which the feisty twin sisters Cyd and Jane take a megabyte out of crime! It is Nancy Drew for the iPod generation! Markley’s debut novel, filled with suspense and zany humour and told with pizzazz, ushers in a new voice in the mystery genre. A sure winner!”
