Reviews

A classic murder mystery with as complex a plot as one could hope for and a most engaging pair of amateur sleuths whom I look forward to encountering again in future novels. -- Charles Osborne, author of The Life and Times of Agatha Christie A really well-crafted and charming mystery story * Daily Mail * A gripping, richly satisfying whodunit with finely observed characters, sparkling with insouciance and stinging menace -- Peter James Roberts just keeps getting better with each book ... highly recommended for fans of Love in a Cold Climate and Gosford Park * Publishers Weekly * A classic murder mystery with as complex a plot as one could hope for and a most engaging pair of amateur sleuths whom I look forward to encountering again in future novels -- Charles Osborne, author of The Life and Crimes of Agatha Christie, on Sweet Poison Praise for David Roberts: ...a delightful successor to Sweet Poison... Set in England and Spain just before the outbreak of the civil war, the plotting, characters and authentic background of this charming book make it a delight to read * The Bookseller * This is a witty and meticulous recreation of the class-ridden middle England of the 1930s... a perfect example of golden-age mystery traditions with the cobwebs swept away, for the many readers who like their sleuthing elegant and their sex and violence concealed behind the curtains * Guardian * Roberts
use of period detail

... gives the tale terrific texture. Recommend this one heartily to history-mystery devotees * Booklist *
