What the Critics Say

"Quiet and intelligent, with class distinctions which motivate its characters. Miss Westmacott writes crisply and is always lucid... much material has been skilfully compressed." (Times Literary Supplement.)

    "Something different"

    Never read one of her none murder books before. Didn't even know she had written any. Was an interesting listen. Worth it I think, although a completely different type of tale. Keep waiting for the murder.
