In the best sense possible, she's a heavyweight * Boston Globe * One of the most entrancing literary treats of many a year * Wall Street Journal * Forget the library - the body is in the mud hut. An African Miss Marple created by a Scottish lawyer . . . superb * Sunday Times * A rare pleasure * Daily Telegraph *
