for Speak No Evil
San Diego Union-Tribune
"A top-notch legal thriller…surprising and satisfying…furnishing
thoughtful insights into what it means to be a liberated woman,
a principled attorney, and a devout Jew in today’s complex society."
"A taut narrative. . . Krich has effectively charted her earnest
heroine’s struggle to find a path that satisfies both the demands
of her private morality and her professional obligations."
The Jewish Journal
"Krich’s novel is a particularly fine example of what makes
hers a unique and worthy voice. . .Her book is full of convincing
detail, whether in the file rooms of justice or in the mind
of a morally perplexed Orthodox woman. The book ultimately has
a lot more on its pages than murder. It raises questions about
ethics and God’s justice versus human justice. It teases with
the inerplay of coercive sex and sexual longing. And it does
this in the mind of the fascinating, flesh-and-blood character
of Debra Laslow."
London, Ontario Free Press
"Legal principles and politics, issues of rape and the law,
Orthdox Jewish beliefs and horribly murdered female attorneys
come together quite nicely. . .The climax and conclusions are
both startling and sadly realistic. The novel is a deft achievement
in answering the factual mystery while leaving readers to puzzle
out their own responses to the more difficult questions of ethics
"Speak No Evil is a jewel. . .Krich weaves the Judaic element
of her story seamlessly into her narrative and in so doing succeeds
in creating another Deborah."
"Krich quickly pulls together all the elements of a superior
"Krich provides fascinating insights into the Jewish religion
and customs. Speak No Evil deals not only with truth and consequences,
but also the question of what is justice and the difficulty
of being true to yourself in today’s fast-paced materialistic
"Gripping and constant suspense…and a powerful ending…Proof
positive that one does not need to be a lawyer to write a mighty
fine legal thriller. In fact, when comparing this book to John
Grisham’s, it may be an advantage not be a lawyer when one wants
to write an excellent novel in this sub-genre…engrossing."
"Thoughtful and absorbing…a smashing climax."
"Krich has created a most admirable character, one with great
insight into the human condition…highly recommended."
"A satisfyingly sturdy yarn."
"Intelligently written…FOUR STARS!"
"SPEAK NO EVIL shows the award-winning author in top form. It's
a fascinating suspense tale combined with prime courtroom drama."
