“As well plotted as Ruth Rendell and with all the psychological complexity you find in the great P. D. James…Beautifully written, it manages to be witty and touching at the same time.” – Bath Chronicle
“I now have a definite soft spot for [main character Sara] Selkirk. In fact, I would like to be invited to her house for tea.” – blogger Sara
