Review quote

"The novel is an absorbing display of craftsmanship, with the transition from the initial theatrical milieu to the Hitchcockian finale accomplished with typical deftness" Sunday Times "An exquisitely crafted tale of dirty dealings among nice English provincial families, this time revolving around a dangerous chemical factory. Goddard is the most idiosyncratic writer around, a wholly English institution with an unmistakable flavour, like cyanide cucumber sandwiches" The Times "Pages seldom turn more quickly then when you are reading Goddard's latest" Yorkshire Evening Post "Twists in the plot come thick and fast" Guardian "Gripping" Publishers Weeklyshow more
