Readers' Views for Anatomical Clues

From fans of crime fiction across the spectrum

"An odd and intriguing book that breaks rules and gets away with it. [...] The idea of an agoraphobic detective who can't leave her apartment doesn't sound promising, but it works – and it works remarkably well."

"I discover that my old crime-writing chum and fellow boulevardier Mike Phillips is now the series editor for a new imprint, Profusion Crime, which aims to bring the best of East European crime writing to an English reading audience, and their opening salvo is something of a showcase for three Romanian writers: George Arion, Oana Stoica-Mujea and Bogdan Hrib."

"A breath of fresh air... Oana Stoica-Mujea has created a character which, while bristly, standoffish and complicated very soon reached into my heart and took residence there. Very different from the many bland female career pathologists, detectives, inspectors and other crime solving heroines on the Anglo-Saxon and European whodunit market [...] Definitely worth the read."

"The main character's brilliancy, troubled psyche and strength are, in my opinion, on a par with Lisbeth Salander, the girl with the dragon tattoo. […] The story is set in provincial Romania, with a good local flavour which I enjoyed. It has universal appeal because it goes to the core of good crime writing, exploring the human soul's lower depths, sending unexpected cold shivers down this reader's spine. "

"Oana Stoica-Mujea has created one of the strongest female leads in Romanian literature. Although her main character in Anatomical Clues, Detective Iolanda Stireanu, is fighting an army of internal demons, bereavement and childhood trauma, she is still the strongest person in the book."
