"Edgar-winner Hornsby's enthralling seventh Maggie MacGowen mystery takes the documentary filmmaker to France... Readers will almost be able to taste the food and drink the author so vividly describes."
-- Publisher's Weekly

"The Paramour's Daughter gripped me and didn't let go. Wendy Hornsby explores new territory, France, and nails it with savoir faire and the perfect detail, threading history through the current day with Maggie MacGowen's voice. Tough and idealistic, Maggie is a heroine we want in our corner."
-- Cara Black, author of the bestselling Aimée Leduc Investigations

"The joy of Wendy Hornsby's books has always been as much her characters and the relationships among them as the story itself. The Paramour's Daughter, which finds Maggie MacGowen having to re-align everything she knows not about someone else, but herself, delivers this same subtlety and truth."
-- SJ Rozan, Edgar-winning author of The Shanghai Moon

Perseverance Press
September 2009

"In the Guise of Mercy manages to be both tough and heartfelt from the first page to the last. Anyone who wants to know why Hornsby won an Edgar should read In the Guise of Mercy immediately."
-- Timothy Hallinan, author of Breathing Water, from Morrow
