Reviews

'With its powerful message of responsibility and redemption - We need both to forgive and to be forgiven - it conveys a moral force in keeping with the season.'

-Wall Street Journal

'The tale is redolent with Victorian atmosphere, from the hypocritical snobbishness to the rigid social conventions of the time.'

-Tangled Web

'A bite-sized mystery that could be fitted in after your Christmas lunch.'

-Daily Telegraph

'Delightful ... The perfect gift for a whodunit addict who likes to curl up with a good book after Christmas lunch.'

-Oxford Times
