What the critics say about "Black Light":
"Black Light is a winner from the beginning to its slam-bang ending. Not to be missed."
— Howard Frye, in Reading For Pleasure
"New York's Joe Noonan is back (his debut was in Bad August)...The motives are many, the suspects carefully drawn and Hearn's dialogue sparkles. Add an inspired, righteous, fist-shaker of a climax, and one has one of the better mysteries of the year. Archer and Marlowe can rest easy, the gimmickless detective still lives.
— Wes Lukowsky for Booklist
"New York P.I. Joe Noonan is one of the great characters, and sadly, there are only two adventures. (Bad August and Black Light)"
— Gary Warren Niebuhr in P.I. Entertainment Service, a catalogue of Private Eye fiction
Bad August and Black Light are both "Highly Recommended" in The Essential Mystery Lists: The Private Eye Novel: 100 Classic and Highly Recommended Titles by Gary Warren Niebuhr.
Black Light was nominated for the Shamus Award by the Private Eye Writers of America
