Booklist,  January 1, 2018

"This engaging romp, spanning the past 80 years, tells of the author’s fascination with an iconic piece of jewelry, the starfish brooch, and the search to trace its history. Riding along, readers learn a lot—how jewelry tastes and construction techniques have evolved; the secretive, select world of the high-end, world- wide jewelry trade, including important players, past and present; intrigues and mysteries surrounding the transfer of ownership of important gems among the rich and famous—hear lots of name-dropping, gossip, and innuendo; and, unfortunately, wind up with lingering questions. Though deliberate miscues, copies and fakes, records in code, and the discovery that there were actually three—or was it four, or five?—originals sometimes temporarily derail the search, what ultimately emerges is a meticulously documented voyage of discovery about this rarefied piece of art and its intricate construction into articulated arms that adapt to fit the contours of the wearer’s body. Entertainment, detective work, serendipity are all here for jewelry and celebrity buffs alike."

— Kathleen McBroom
