Product description

Review

A plethora of suspects, a reserved, mild-mannered hero, and the understatement so typical of the traditional British procedural. (Kirkus Reviews)

Unerring characterization, droll copper dialogue and a gritty London setting, Harrod-Eagles mines fresh pleasures from standard procedural resources. (Publishers Weekly)

Harrod-Eagles and her detective hero form a class act. The style is fast, funny and furious, the plotting crisply devious, and the denouement perversely wayward. And even then, the final line in the novel contains an extra little gasp-inducing twist. Lovely stuff. (Irish Times)

Being able to write with pacy humour is rare. Constructing good thrillers with realistic characters is also rare. Being able to combine the two, and to do it successfully, is nearly unique. (DAVID TUMELTY)

The British author handles district police procedures with the same easy authority she brings to the busy backstage life of a large symphony orchestra. Her ear is especially attuned, though, to character nuance... (Marilyn Stasio New York Times Book Review)

Masterful debut... Although Harrod-Eagles unabashedly hints at a clue that might settle everything, no one bit of information answers every question. A sophisticated ending whets readers' interest in the further adventures of these strong players. (Publishers Weekly)

The mystery is a good one, its investigation is workmanlike, and the writing is assured and even elegant. (Sunday Telegraph)

A witty, intricate puzzle (Publishers Weekly)

There is a briskness and unpretentiousness to Harrod-Eagles' writing... (she) keeps the plot moving with verve and wit and the whole thing is suitably entertaining. (Million)

Intertwined with the investigation is an unusually well done love story which complements rather than distracts. The characters are diverse and believable... the story is well-paced and the last fifty pages virtually force you to read them. (Roberta Penn Prime Suspect)
