I loved this novel. Set just after the First World War, its clever plotting hides a powerful story of loss, malice and deceptionImagine a plot as devious as anything Agatha Christie devised, locate it in a Derbyshire village in 1919 and with writing as close to the pulse as Vera Brittain's TESTAMENT OF YOUTH and you will have some idea of the extraordinary power of Kate Ellis's new novel. - Peter LoveseyA splendidly macabre thriller with a very dark heart and a hugely effective twist at the endKate Ellis has established a deserved reputation for ingenious whodunit plots [and] in A HIGH MORTALITY OF DOVES, she breaks new ground. Fascinating, with a characteristically clever twist. - Martin EdwardsI absolutely loved this book. It's a perfectly paced crime novel that beautifully evokes both time and place. Kate Ellis keeps you guessing all the way through to the final unexpected twist. This could be an instant classic
