A jewel in the traditional English detective mode... Ms. Morse has arrived

Imogen Quy positively sparkles on the page as an amateur sleuth.
<i>Sunday Express</i>
In Imogen Quy, the author has created an admirable detective heroine, as unabashed as she is unaffected.
<i>Times Literary Supplement</i>
Paton Walsh plots deftly and writes intelligently . . . Sayers' many fans will be delighted.
Andrew Taylor, <i>Independent</i>
Jill Paton Walsh demonstrates that the traditional ingredients of the woman sleuth, the academic background and a clever puzzle are still capable of being arranged into an entertaining and stimulating crime novel.
