"Atmospheric … absorbing … haunting."
— The Washington Post Book World
"[Crombie] is writing in P.D. James territory, and she is a master."
— Associated Press
"Crombie never stumbles as she maneuvers her way through her complicated plot as skillfully as she handles the ongoing romance between her two detectives. The result is an Anglophile’s delight."
— The Sunday Denver Post
"Deborah Crombie is an American mystery novelist who writes so vividly about England, she might have been born within the sound of Bow bells. [She] gets better with each book … lyrical, biting, and evocative."
— The Plain Dealer, Cleveland
