Brody's excellent mystery splendidly captures the conflicts and attitudes of the time with well-developed characters
RT Book Reviews
I have enjoyed all five Kate Shackleton books but this is the best so far. Frances Brody has made it to the top rank of crime writers
Daily Mail
Kate Shackleton is a delightful leading character. The flavour of post First World War England is beautifully portrayed. An enjoyable and gripping mystery story
Kate Shackleton is a splendid heroine
Ann Granger
Kate Shackleton joins Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs in a subgroup of young, female amateur detectives who survived and were matured by their wartime experiences. As self-reliant women in a society that still regards them a second-class citizens, they make excellent heroines
Literary Review
Refreshing and highly entertaining, especially for the winter nights
Gazette and Herald
This is whimsical, colourful stuff and readers will warm to the entrepreneurial yet fragile Kate
