Review quote

"Fans of Agatha Christie and dedicated Anglophiles will enjoy this entertaining and well-wrought traditional mystery, which will keep readers guessing until the very last page" Booklist "Gordon-Smith's eighth return to the past provides plenty of between-the-wars atmosphere and a surfeit of red herrings" Kirkus Reviews "Set in the 1920s and written in traditional British style, Gordon-Smith's eighth series entry (after Blood from a Stone) delights with its deftly juggled subplots and smashing conclusion. Think Dorothy Sayers when recommending to readers." Library Journal
