MEDIA REVIEWS

A cracking yarn, beguilingly real from start to finish... you have to pinch yourself to remind you that it is fiction - or is it?

-- Peter Snow

This is detective fiction in the grand style; the characters and the plot soar upwards and carry us in their wake. Powerscourt's debut in this intoxicating book is the start of a gilded life in the archives of crime.

-- James Naughtie
In this excellent novel, Dickinson weaves a tale of blackmail and murder among the royals late in Victoria's reign... One hopes to see more of Lord Powerscourt and his friends in the near future. * Publishers Weekly *
