Welcome to Sara Gran's new series featuring the strange and briiliant detective Claire DeWitt. What is a crime? What is a mystery? Why do some of us solve them while others pass them by? And most of all, how do we know the truth, and recognize it when we see it?


'Sara Gran is a truly unique voice and Claire DeWitt is a detective like no other.' MARK BILLINGHAM

'Claire DeWitt and the Bohemian Highway makes me excited for the future of the private eye novel. It's that rare thing -- a second entry in a series that's even more stellar than the first. Bold, inventive, fiercely unique. If I ever go missing, send for Claire DeWitt -- no other PI can compare.' CHRIS EWAN

I love this book!  Absolutely love it.  This is the first fresh literary voice I've heard in years. - Sue Grafton, A is for Alibi

Just when I begin to despair that the PI novel has worn out its welcome, a writer with a fresh take reminds me why I fell in love with the genre. --Laura Lippman, I'd Know You Anywhere

With Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead, Sara Gran has pulled the traditional female sleuth into the twenty-first century with a novel that's smart and hip, dark and funny. - Alafair Burke, author of LONG GONE

This is not just a mystery novel but also a novel about mysteries; Claire DeWitt is a detective less by choice than by calling. With “City of the Dead,” Sara Gran has written something truly splendid and unique, and if we’re all very lucky, there will be more. -- Craig Clevenger, author of The Contortionists Handbook

A big recommendation for CLAIRE DeWITT AND THE CITY OF THE DEAD. -- Sarah Weinman
