Praise for Truth Kills

" ... an impressive debut and a promising start to a smart new mystery series." – Kirkus Reviews

“If you've ever wondered what Stephanie Plum would be like with a little experience in life under her belt, Nanci Rathbun has the answer. Rathbun injects a lot of depth into a standard romantic mystery story. Her heroine is flawed and complex, her plot perfectly constructed to bring out all of the facets she's created. For mystery lovers, or fans of romantic suspense, Nanci Rathbun is one to watch.” – Shelf Awareness

“In Truth Kills, Rathbun combines sparkling characters, a well-constructed plot, and a dollop of humor and romance to concoct a very entertaining mystery featuring the unique private investigator, Angelina Bonaparte. If you like your heroines smart and sassy, this book is for you. I highly recommend this series!” – Margaret Mizushima, award-winning author of Tracking Game: A Timber Creek K-9 Mystery

“Nanci Rathbun’s Truth Kills introduces an engaging and credible new private eye who’s determined to live life by her rules for a change. She’s doing the job she always wanted to do and, backed with her training, fitness, and resolve, she presents herself as a formidable private eye indeed. Rathbun’s characters are marvelous, all working perfectly as foils for Angie Bonaparte, and the plot offers the armchair sleuth any number of red herrings to consider. Truth Kills is well-written, fast-paced and a lot of fun to read. It’s most highly recommended.” – 5* from Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite

 "...attention to psychological depth and detail meld well with the investigative intrigue and moments of comic relief to pepper a story with different twists and turns. This will delight readers who enjoy female investigators with an attitude about life and their work. Add a touch of romance for a fine tale that weaves an older woman's life and perspectives into bigger pictures about crime, love, family connections, and life purposes. Mystery readers are in for a treat when they delve into the deceptions and realities of Truth Kills." – Diane Donovan for Midwest Book Review

Praise for Cash Kills

“The last female P.I. who drew me in like this was Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone. I can only hope Nanci Rathbun and her Angelina will be entertaining us for as long as Sue and Kinsey have. Terrific series.” – Sandra Balzo, bestselling author of the Maggy Thorsen mysteries

“To find justice in the midst of lies and cover-ups, Angie must face her own fear of trusting another. Readers will relate to her humor, vulnerability and dedication to the truth.” – IBPA Benjamin Franklin Silver Honoree for digital ebook excellence

“Angelina may be in over her head in many ways; but the reader won't be … interrelationships and their logic are deftly portrayed, and Cash Kills follows a time-tested (and successful) path in the mystery genre by creating a spunky protagonist who steps up to the plate to take charge. It's a solid mystery with enough political and psychological depth to keep readers involved to the end.” – Diane Donovan for Midwest Book Review

PI Angelina Bonaparte "reminded me at times of Parker’s Spenser in her detecting, her sense of humor, and her flamboyant sartorial style. Cash Kills is a first-rate mystery that combines police procedural with private detection and it features a compelling lead character and a marvelous cast. It’s entertaining, fast-paced and suspenseful, and is highly recommended." – 5* review by Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite

“For a 50-something mom, Angie Bonaparte can sure handle the bad guys. Angie is a believable blend of tough stuff and compassion, and uses both for her clients. With well-placed exposition, and clear introduction of secondary characters, the author sends our protagonist on a seemingly mundane financial inheritance investigation, which soon explodes into an appalling murder and horrific revelations from the Bosnian War. The author does a splendid job of keeping the threads pulled in the same direction, all tumbling toward … a satisfying conclusion to the investigation.” – The Editing Pen

Praise for Honor Kills

“Honor Kills ... ticks all the boxes of a good detective mystery, and the lead character Angie is extremely easy to empathize with. The plot was intricate and full of twists and turns. Having read Honor Kills, I am motivated to read the other books in Rathbun's series, which is probably as high a praise as a reviewer can give an author.” – 5* review by Grant Leishman for Readers' Favorite

“Ms. Rathbun perfectly captures the heart of a mystery, which is all about humans and the complexities of their relationships.” – The Editing Pen Reviews

“... a superior read in a genre that too often focuses on the 'whodunnit' over the 'why pursue this inquiry' question.” – Diane Donovan for Midwest Book Review

“Unexpected plot twists and a strong female character makes for a great combination in this story. I can't wait to read the others in the
