Praise

“Charming…Mcdonald’s fans will find it graceful and diverting…It cannot be denied that…Mcdonald still does what he does exceedingly well.” Washington Post

Flynn’s World is cause for celebration. Not only does it revive Boston police inspector Francis Xavier Flynn, it gives new work by Gregory Mcdonald, whose deft plotting, breezy style, pointed social commentary, and keen wit make him one of our most satisfying writers.” Boston Globe

“Gregory Mcdonald is one of the greats…Flynn fans will adore this long-awaited book, and thoughtful mystery readers will appreciate Mcdonald’s quirky take on the mystery genre.” Rocky Mountain News

“Flynn has aged well in the twenty years since his last appearance in print. Two-time Edgar winner Mcdonald’s humor, pacing, and erudite dialogue are as fresh as ever. Welcome back, Flynn.” Booklist

“When he isn’t crossing swords with benighted academics like Dean Wincomb and Donald Carver, he and his chess partner, Lieutenant Walter (‘Cocky’) Concannon are conspiring to bust Detective Lieutenant John Kurt, whose impressive arrest record includes blacks, gays, and Jews, but not a single straight white gentile…Intersperses shreds of detection with gleams of Mcdonald’s trademark badinage.” Kirkus Reviews
