Review quote

'It's top stuff that is not afraid to talk intelligently to its readership' - The Telegraph; 'A worthy purchase... The pacing of the story is very good, from the beginning scenes in Venice, where the mystery is practically carried back by the heroines unawares in their luggage. It bears a strong sense of realistic threat to them all, and is not wrapped up in a pat or unlikely way either, but with a continued sense of the assured writing' - The Book Bag; 'Nancy Drew for the Noughties...she is sassy and sharp with a unique futuristic edge. ***** Five star review!' - Betty Bookmarkshow more
