'An entertaining read, and one that had me up to the wee small hours.' * Crimesquad *
'Absorbing, charming and funny, A Brush With Death heralds a fresh and welcome new voice in crime writing. Susie Mahl is also a welcome new detective: witty, warm and very inquisitive.' * Antonia Fraser *
`A Brush with Death is a perfectly English mystery, with an abundance of all the right jokes, details, and muddy dogs. Author Ali Carter's first book is a lovely romp and shows promise for a wonderful tongue-in-cheek mystery series.' * Foreword Reviews *
'Brilliantly enjoyable; coolly observed.' * The Tablet *
`Animal lovers, Anglophiles, and fans of humorous, socially observant whodunits will look forward to the next Susie Mahl mystery.' * Publishers Weekly *

`Fans of country-house cozies will delight in this series debut.' * Booklist *
'This is a crime novel for mystery fans sick of gore and sexual violence. Just curl up and lose yourself happily in this world of animals and toffs - closely observed by a beady-eyed artist turned amateur sleuth who realises all is not as innocent as it looks and is determined to do something about it.' * Ruth Dudley Edwards, author of The Robert Amiss Mysteries *
`A Brush with Death is a charming and amusing murder mystery. It contains great character observations and is written with humour. She brings to life the world of the aristocracy and everything that goes with it. A pleasant change from the dark Norwegian Noir genre. It is definitely a book to take on holiday.' * Country Wives *

`Carter is a fresh and welcome new voice in crime writing and Susie Mahl a very different new detective.' * Crime Review *
'The first book in a promising new series will remind you of Downton Abbey and Miss Marple, except that this Miss M is a pet portraitist with a penchant for rather expensive underwear, and it's purely for her own pleasure.' * Bookbag *
