Brian Lindenmuth of Spinetingler Magazine picked his best crime fiction of 2012 today, and elevates Ro Cuzon’s Under the Dixie Moon to his top ten.

“In the past I’ve written that the PI novel is the haiku of crime fiction, there may be only 17 syllables but in the right hands those syllables will sing; that there is the potential for a lot of power in that framework. Ro Cuzon has written one of the freshest PI novels in years. Great characters, great sense of place, and great action. The third person POV allows a wider cast and more interactions that pays off strongly as the story lines come together.”
