Praise for Rennie Airth

“Outstanding.”—Publishers Weekly (starred)

“[The Decent Inn of Death] is a locked-room murder mystery that rivals the best of Agatha Christie, Ruth Rendell or P.D. James.”—BookPage
“Move over, Inspectors Alleyn, Dalgliesh, and Morse, and make room for John Madden in the pantheon of great, civilized English sleuths.”—The New Yorker
“Madden is seamlessly admirable…In an era when our real-life heroes tend to have feet of thick, grubby clay, it can be bracing to spend time with a  man who is naturally but not implausibly noble.”—The Washington Post Book World
“[Airth’s] meticulously detailed procedural mysteries are beautifully written… well worth reading, and rereading, whenever we’re engaged in war.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times
“One of the best mysteries in years.”—The Boston Globe
“Airth writes with arresting authority and compassion…a major talent.”—Chicago Tribune
“It’s the tactics and the terrain, the morale and the characters that make the difference between an average thriller and one as good as this.”—The New York Times Book Review
