ROBIN PERRON, Amazon Review
"If you are a fan of novels that keep a good pace and also keep you thinking then A Woman to Blame by Vincent Panettiere will be right up your alley. The main character is Mike Heagan, tough guy cop whose career ends because of medical disability. His life was no cup of tea either. After announcing his engagement to his fiancé he loses her. He has substantial conflicts to deal with within in his family. And he's a cop, it can't get much harder.
The story opens with Mike on a small Carribean Island investigating a homicide that he disagrees with the official ruling on. His quest for the truth takes him places from Chicago to the Carribean and introduces to characters from all walks of life. Even the small characters that we only see briefly are well developed and interesting. The characters are so engaging that I would love to see Mike Heagan as the center of a series. Well done."

"A woman to blame? Mike Hegan, a veteran police detective being forced to retire on medical disability, refuses to believe the official version. His search for the truth leads him to a promontory on a Caribbean island where scores are settled and lives lost.
But the real pleasure of A WOMAN TO BLAME, fine though the storyline is, in the manner in which Panettierre introduces his cast of characters, the vivid verismo of his scene descriptions, and the polished quality of his writing. An auspicious debut novel."
