Reviews

An excellent whodunnit, matched by the terrific down-at-heel atmosphere of postwar Brighton - The TimesGriffiths evokes with some skill the seedy allure of the provincial theatre and the drabness of a Britain that is still rationed - Sunday TimesMixes cosiness and sharpness in a way that recalls the best of Agatha Christie and has a feel for showfolk worthy of Ngaio Marsh - Sunday ExpressOriginal, lively and gripping - Independent (on The Zig Zag Girl)Enormously engaging ... Post-war Brighton and its Theatre Royal are beautifully captured in all their seedy glory ... subtle, charming and very good - Daily Mail (on The Zig Zag Girl)
