News and Reviews...
"A delightful who-done-it in which the house is as engaging as the wonderful heroine. Readers will want to get lost in these rooms and these pages."
—Cate Holahan, USA Today bestselling author of "Her Three Lives"
"If you love houses and puzzles - which I do - you will be captivated by THE GREENLEAF MURDERS, the first in Richard Koreto's new series. Equally sure-footed in the gilded age of the mansion's heyday and the contemporary world of its decline, Koreto has woven a pretzel of a plot, introduced a charming new heroine, and whetted appetites for more grave deeds and grandeur."
—Catriona McPherson, multi-award-winning author of the Dandy Gilver series
I believe I was secretly born to be an architect, which is probably why I so enjoyed this mystery of a stately NYC mansion and its role in murders both past and present.
—Lisa Black, NYT bestselling author of "Every Kind of Wicked"
The Greenleaf Murders mixes a modern suspense mystery with the love of old-world mansions and iconic High Society. Buried secrets threaten a family clinging to their former glory as two murders surface, a century apart. Koreto weaves a story that creates the perfect tension between the beauty of the golden era and the fear of a killer in plain sight.
—L.A. Chandlar, national best selling author of the Art Deco Mystery Series
“One would think that a murder mystery featuring old homes, architecture, and rich blue bloods would be a dull read, but that’s not the case with R.J. Koreto’s finely-written “The Greenleaf Murders.” Filled with twists and turns and sharply-drawn characters, this well-done novel is very much recommended.”
—Brendan DuBois, award-wining and New York Times bestselling author
Set firmly in the 21st-century but glancing back toward The Gilded Age, The Greenleaf Murders explores twinned stories of manners, morals, and mystery across more than a century—with a grand family mansion as the cornerstone for each. Like his engaging new heroine—architect Wren Fontaine—R.J. Koreto proves himself a master craftsman throughout, with a keen eye for all the right details.
—Art Taylor, Edgar Award winner, author of The Boy Detective & The Summer of ’74
Koreto weaves past and present into an engrossing tale of old and new New York. Fans of Fiona Davis will delight in this blending of history with present-day issues, proving that the more things change, the more they stay the same. An engaging heroine uses her knowledge of history to unravel a century-old family secret and solve a very recent murder as she restores a landmark home in Manhattan.
—Victoria Thompson, USAToday bestselling author of "Murder On Pleasant Avenue"
