'The fourth of James Runcie's delightful Grantchester Mysteries, which ought to bring about a critical reappraisal of the genre rather dismissively referred to as cosy crime ... The ongoing plots bind the stories, yet each in themselves is precise ... They are a joy' -- Stuart Kelly, Scotland on Sunday
'All manner of nostalgic delights. Perfect reading for a sunny English garden' Kate Saunders, Independent
'The author knows the location well and has caught its dour charm and great art treasures to perfection. The story is a little art lesson in itself' Country Life
'The violence in the Chambers stories takes place off-stage; the moral crises are internal. Perhaps the most startling aspect of these low-key, beguiling tales is their matter-of-fact depiction of a person of faith incorporating spiritual aspiration into daily life' Wall Street Journal
