  • Ok but nor great

    I loved the idea of Josephine Tey solving murders as she's one of my favourite authors but the novel wasn't as well written as I would have liked.

  • Great title.

    I found this book to be an intriguing story,Nicola Upson has. a wonderful ability to drag you into the story and let you start identifying with her characters.

  • Stodgy Writing

    I found this a disappointing read. For me the writing was very stodgy, with long pointless sentences; the characterisation seemed shallow; and Upson appears to be deeply committed to the "tell don't show" school of writing. Given the subject, I had hoped for a lot more.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • An Expert in Murder

    I enjoyed this book immensely. Rarely has a first novel been such an intricately woven plot that captures the reader's attention with such heady themes as love, betrayal, misogny, valour, honour expertly combined within a first rate crime novel.

    Thanks for your feedback!
