“Quick-paced. . . . Shuman's cast is full of recognizable, fully fleshed-out characters, the dialogue is sprightly and realistic, and Dunn's handicap (his left arm doesn't work) is sensitively presented.” —Publishers Weekly
“Well-drawn characters, good dialogue and a fine use of New Orleans as a backdrop make The Caesar Clue a good choice for the crime addict with a taste for what’s sinister in the South.” —Times-Picayune
“Deep Kill is a dizzying whirl through New Orleans’ underworld of petty crooks, voodoo fakes and religious salesman with political agendas.” —The Houston Post
“There’s a touch of Sam Spade in the telling of the story… Shuman paints a vivid picture not only of New Orleans but of the effects of a heinous accusation on the life of a man.” —Baton Rouge Advocate
