The writing is as smooth as polished steel, and the small touches that reveal character, especially the memorable Hen, approach genius. This is Lovesey at his best * Publishers Weekly *
Brusque Diamond and plain-speaking Mallin make an engaging team, and few, if any, can top Lovesey in not only creating believable red herrings and plot twists but whetting an appetite for reading the English classics * Kirkus Reviews *
No-one has done this kind of thing better since Dorothy L. Sayers . . . A must for crime buffs * Mail on Sunday *
