Product description

Review

[An] extremely impressive debut...told by Robertson with great panache - The Times

Satisfyingly complex... Robertson's greatest achievement is the creation of characters who are vivid and believable and so engaging that one hopes Crowther and Westerman find more murders to solve in the future - Guardian

Poetic, enchanting, and chillingly memorable. Imogen Robertson is an exquisite writer, and this is an extraordinary novel - Tess Gerritsen

A charmingly intriguing murder mystery set in 18th century England...Robertson breathes life into her chosen period as authentically as did Georgette Heyer - Daily Mail

Thundering - Financial Times

A large country estate; an ancient and powerful aristocratic family; a dangerous hidden secret; a mysterious anatomist; a feisty amateur female detective and the brutal murder of a stranger. Really, what more could you want from a novel? Well, how about a link to the American revolutionary war and London in riotous meltdown? It's all here in glorious abundance in this rich and lustrous historical crime novel, Instruments of Darkness, the debut work of the ludicrously talented Imogen Robertson - Material Witness

[An] extraordinary, high quality historical thriller - Eurocrime

An atmospheric and twisting novel...an engaging heroine, loony-tune aristos, a cracking plot that fizzes along and a dangerous hidden secret. The follow-up is just as good - Material Witness --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
