“It is pure 1930s, when the hero did say to the villain: 'Good grief! You're a cold blooded killer!' and the heroine did affectionately call her hero 'a cockeyed chump!' To all concerned 'Jolly good show, chaps.'" (The Times)
“Christopher Cazenove seems to relish his role as Norman Conquest, a hero about who dashing is the least that could be said! Atmospheric and great fun for those who prefer older-style detectives.” (Daily Express)
