satreviewPRAISE for Saturday Night Dead
“The best in the series. Saturday Night Dead is another grand slam.”
-Philadelphia Inquirer

“Black humor, quirky characters and unpredictable plotting make Saturday Night Dead as sharp and fast-moving as, um, a certain late-night comedy show was in its early days.”
-Chicago Sun-Times

“The story’s skillful contrasts of edged satire and pathos make it irresistible, the third triumph for Blissberg and his creator.”
-Publishers Weekly

“Rosen…plainly knows the comedy industry at first hand….You are kept on the edge until the very end.”
-The New York Times

“The story’s skillful contrasts of edged satire and pathos make it irresistible, the third triumph for Blissberg and his creator.”
-Publishers Weekly

“It’s three hits in three at-bats for ex-Red Sox outfielder turned detective Harvey Blissberg…An unusual, thoroughly gratifying mystery.”
-ALA Booklist

“Many of the iconoclastic jokes and sketches that Rosen dreams up for the show could easily fly on “Saturday Night Live,” making this the kind of nasty, knowing satire worth tuning in.”
-Marilyn Stasio

“A careful, steady pace erupts in the final minutes for a dazzling conclusion with as many pops and flashes as a fireworks finale.”
-The Boston Globe

“Rosen’s quick, snappy writing will tickle [your] TV consciousness and may even evoke enough laughs to make [you] exclaim, “Isn’t this special?”
-People

“Rosen has a found a refreshing means of reviving the whodunit, and making it read like something new….Every scene rings true….A totally engaging performance.”
-West Coast Review of Books

“Harvey manages to retain his laid-back charm; the author his sharply attuned eye and ear; and, happily, the pace quickens as the plot thickens to produce engrossing entertainment….”
-Kirkus Reviews
