'Told with great colour and panache... A wonderful sense of inhabiting the period.' Sherlock Magazine 'Brilliant and irresistible. This is an ideal history mystery for those days when you need something to take your mind off the world around you, and immerse yourself in a really good book ... Marston has written another superb mystery ... More please!' Angela Youngman
