"Anyone who loves crossword puzzles and reading has it made with this mystery series. The crosswords must be completed in order to solve the mystery. For those like me who are not very good, the authors have been kind enough to provide the answers at the back. Each one of these mysteries, including this one stands alone fine so if you are new to the series, you will have not a problem. I enjoyed reading this mystery and look forward to the next installment."

Publishers Weekly - 5-Stars

"Crossword buffs will welcome Nero Blanc's Death on the Diagonal, in which crossword editor Belle Graham and her PI husband, Rosco, investigate a suspicious fire at the stables of a prominent family in Newcastle, Mass."

Harriet Klausner

"DEATH ON THE DIAGONAL is one of the best of Nero Blanc's delightful puzzlers with the clues found as always in the puzzles. The insight into a horse farm operation anchors the fun story line as well as presents several viable suspects with means and opportunities. Roscoe and Belle look to the puzzles for motive. Readers will enjoy this fine treat as the whodunit is cleverly devised to make the crosswords even more enticing."
