"Thoft’s gripping sequel...A quirky and empathetic heroine, a fast-moving plot, and a surprise ending make this a winner. "
"What starts, in Thoft’s dazzling first novel, as a missing-persons case for Boston PI Fina Ludlow—the search for her sister-in-law, Melanie – swells through layers of familial secrets, lies, and betrayals to something approaching Greek tragedy…readers will be eager to see more of smash-mouth Fina, a hard-boiled throwback equally comfortable shooting from the hip or the lip."

"This firecracker of a series starter is a perfect summer read."
"Thoft skillfully balances the array of business, family, and cryobank-related motives, and she crafts a great climax. Scrappy Fina’s character is uncommonly fully realized… Readers will find plenty to love about her. "
"In her debut novel, Ingrid Thoft gives us Fina Ludlow, the newest private eye to prowl Boston's mean streets. Fina returns the female detective to the heart of the hard-boiled tradition: hard-drinking, hard-loving, moody."
—New York Times-bestselling author Sara Paretsky
"LOYALTY's Fina Ludlow is my hero. If I were in a bad spot, I'd want her at my back. Don't miss it."
—# 1 New York Times-bestselling author Catherine Coulter
"LOYALTY, Ingrid Thoft's strong debut, is gripping, and Fina Ludlow, the black sheep of her male-dominated family of ambulance chasers, elevates it to a must-read."
—New York Times-bestselling author Ridley Pearson
