"The Doctor Digs a Grave strikes me as the perfect combination of the old and the new. The plot is as mysterious as old-fashioned mysteries but the telling is sleek and fashionable and right up to date. The novel has charm, wiles, and its own underplayed style of humor. Robin Hathaway is a real find." - Ed Gorman, Editor, Mystery Scene Magazine

"Hathaway deserves a wide readership for this smooth and entertaining blend of jargon-free medical lore, little-known historical facts and credible mystery plotting." - Publisher's Weekly

"Newcomer Hathaway...maintains an easygoing, unpretentious touch even with her complex plot, Native Indian lore, heavily technical medical background, and nebbishy but nice hero. Lovers of hospital drama, in particular, will welcome a return visit."- Kirkus Reviews
