From Publishers Weekly
In Hall's fourth Stanley Hastings novel the hero stumbles yet again into the arms of crime--this time, into a series of strangulations of potential clients for detective Hastings's ambulance-chasing employers. "Though the plot is somewhat garbled, Hall arranges wonderful surprises at the end," wrote PW , adding that the work is "sure to win Hall plaudits and fans."

From Library Journal
Hall's likable, humorous, and self-deprecating protagonist/narrator, Stanley Hastings, is still signing up clients for a law firm in New York. Lately, however, unknown hands have strangled several prospects before Stanley can get a signature. Things look bad for Stanley and/or the law firm until Stanley, bucking the favorite theory of a prickly police sergeant, baits a trap for his own prime suspect. The narrator's easygoing observations, realistic quirks, and agreeable sense of humor sharpen the focus; a great addition to the series.--
