MEDIA REVIEWS
Frances Brody succeeds brilliantly. . . Her post-war world in which making any sort of living is hard grind and where an independent career woman is viewed with hostility is entirely convincing. Kate is a heroine to like and admire. . . Her further adventures are eagerly awaited * The Daily Mail *
Brody's excellent mystery splendidly captures the conflicts and attitudes of the time with well-developed characters * RT Book Reviews *
Reminiscent of the Golden Age mysteries, Murder in the Afternoon delivers an excellent whodunit, an atmospheric period piece, a snapshot of a bygone England and, in Kate, an appealing heroine wtih a complex past * Richmond Times Dispatch *
