There is a freshness about [Perry's] writing which makes it truly exceptional and I was gripped until the final page. Death on Blackheath was one of the best books I've read this year and I cannot recommend it highly enough * Eurocrime *
Much more than a whodunit, [A Sunless Sea], possibly the author's best yet, is especially effective at providing a nuanced look at a vital controversy of the day * Publishers' Weekly *
The investigation concludes in a hold-your-breath trial... A brilliant Victorian police procedural in which well-realized characters and settings are fascinating in themselves * Booklist *
