"The Corpse with the Silver Tongue, the debut novel by British Columbia author Cathy Ace, is a sharply paced cozy with a French flair If you enjoy a meticulously plotted whodunit in the traditional vein, then Ace's debut will be what you're looking for: a pleasant diversion with a dash of brain teaser." —The Hamilton Spectator
"In the finest tradition of Agatha Christie, debut author Ace brings us the closed-room drama, with a dollop of romantic suspense and historical intrigue." Library Journal
"Lovers of puzzle plots should meet Professor Cait Morgan [Cathy Ace is] a writer to watch." The Globe and Mail
"[Cathy] Ace's smooth debut introduces Welsh-born Cait Morgan, a Vancouver, BC, criminology professor and police consultant, who finds more than she bargained for in Nice, France Cait's enjoyable first outing should earn her a well-deserved encore." Publishers Weekly

Cait is an interesting character because she has an excellent memory but a habit of judging others quickly. I did find myself annoyed by her at times, but that never lasted for long. The suspects make a strong cast as they have layers to them that Cait has to peal back before she can solve the crime. And the plot heads into some areas I wasn’t expecting that I found interesting. I had a couple of niggles with the climax, but they were minor.

I read so much that finding a fresh perspective on the traditional locked room mystery through the words of an author who builds unique and memorable characters--so many and yet all easy to remember so no confusion--and writes so engagingly, is a true treat. Highly recommended for mystery lovers everywhere.
As I got farther into the book, however, I found myself very much enjoying it. The storyline, a murder in Nice, was it because of a stolen necklace or because of a dispute over a pool, was good. I did find the second, later, storyline a bit far fetched, about neo-Nazism and the Collar of Death (couldn’t find a reference to it on Google so this part of the story might be made up.)
However, I enjoyed the book and will put the next one in the series on my “to read” list.
