Product description

Review

The period features are done with aplomb, the dialogue shines with Golden Age wit, and McPherson's heroine is warm and sharp as well as ingenious at solving the mysteries she is presented with. - Scotland on Sunday on DANDY GILVER AND AN UNSUITABLE DAY FOR A MURDER

A subtle detonation of the cosy genre... an acute sense of period, sharp observation of the mores of the day (both above and below stairs), a nicely-judged infusion of humour and a winning heroine. - Independent on DANDY GILVER AND THE PROPER TREATMENT OF BLOODSTAINS

Guaranteed to appeal to those who have never got over the death of Dorothy L Sayers . . . McPherson has an ear for mellifluous language ... The story bristles with clues, and the resolution.. is unguessable. - Financial Times on DANDY GILVER AND THE PROPER TREATMENT OF BLOODSTAINS

Dan Brown meets Barbara Pym . . . Dandy is brisk, baffled, heroic, kindly, scandalised and - above all - very funny - Guardian
