Praise for Murder at the Villa Byzantine:

“I have read all of Raichev’s books. They are very clever. I really am a fan.”—R.L. Stine

“R.T. Raichev, a Bulgarian-born Brit, delivers this classic with the perfect panache one expects from an author who wrote his doctoral dissertation on English crime fiction…Fans of the classic mystery who haven’t already discovered this excellent series should start here and then read the rest.”—Toronto Globe and Mail

“Clever . . . Set in contemporary London, Raichev’s series has attitude, like a mash-up of Evelyn Waugh, P.G. Wodehouse and P.D. James.”—Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

“Antonia and Hugh’s sixth whodunit again wraps an intelligent mystery in a warm cloak of delightfully arch dialogue.”—Kirkus Reviews

“His sixth series title (after The Curious Incident at Claridge’s) offers a twisted plot with unusual characters and clever dialog that will appeal to fans of Golden Age mysteries.”—Library Journal

Praise for R. T. Raichev:

“Antonia’s third mystery deftly mixes dark humor and psychological suspense, its genteel surface masking delicious deviancy.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

Greed, jealousy, rampant emotions, and a killer lurk in the wings of this tale that mixes Henry James’s psychological insight with Agatha Christie’s whodunit plotting skills. Throw in a diabolically clever story line and the challenge to readers to figure out what is really going on, and Raichev once again triumphs in this totally fascinating game of wits. Highly recommended for all collections.”—Library Journal, Starred Review

“Except for its modern-day setting, the book could have been published during Agatha Christie’s heyday, the so-called Golden Age of detective fiction, and readers who relish that period will be delighted by Assassins at Ospreys.”—Denver Post
