‘Highly amusing’ – Evening Standard

T P Fielden's writing style is quirky, and initially threw me; going off on a tangent becomes the norm, totally in-tune with the mind of the book's heroine and main protagonist, Miss Dimont. However, I soon got used to the writing style and was hooked by this charming story.
T P Fielden sets the book in the Devon town of Temple Regis and being a regular visitor to Devon, I was able to visualise the town and its beauty. The story is well told and I finished the book wanting more.
Definitely recommended, even for readers of Vince Flynn, Ben Coes and Mark Greaney etc.
Now waiting for Resort to Murder.
Being a lover of crime fiction anyway I was wondering whether this vintage setting was going to be a little precious, but no - in fact it paints what I understand (from what my parents had shared with me) is a very accurate picture of those post-WW2 years where the serious sadness of the war bumped into newly unrestrained freedom and frivolity, often with uncomfortable results. Fielden manages to use undercurrents of this more serious element of the period while entertaining us with wry humour, and a complex, twisting plot that - like all good whodunnits - keeps us guessing right to the end.
A very well-deserved 5 stars.
As one reviewer has already said, the book fails dismally in creating a sense of the period in which it is set. The prose is ponderous and the characters badly drawn. The plot is flimsy but padded out to such a degree that there is no joy in reading this boring book. Yes, I admit, I broke the golden rule and put it aside before it was completely read but if I had attempted to read further I would have fallen prey to terminal hypersomnia.
