MEDIA REVIEWS
The wittiest of detective writers * Daily Mail *
Heyer's characterisation and dialogue are an abiding delight to me . . . I have seldom met people to whom I have taken so violent a fancy from the word Go. -- Dorothy L. Sayers
A writer of great wit and style . . . I've read her books to ragged shreds. * Daily Telegraph *
Rarely have we seen humour and mystery so perfectly blended. * New York Times *
We had better start ranking her alongside such incomparable whodunit authors as Christie, Marsh, Tey and Allingham. * San Francisco Chronicle *

“Full of period language and atmosphere”

A really fun whodunnit. I love the way she uses the language of the time to build a comprehensive picture of the characters and settings. A fun country house murder mystery.
