The Other Romanian is Anne Argula's fourth novel featuring the acerbic P.I., Quinn. The first of these fast and clever novels, Homicide My Own, earned Argula an Edgar nomination for Best Paperback Original. This latest work continues to defy any easy categorization of its one-of-a-kind, one-name heroine. If you haven't met Quinn yet, you're in for a welcome surprise. If you have met her, welcome back. Argula starts you guessing with the opening sentence, and you aren't likely to stop guessing until the very last line.
