Praise

Praise for The Secrets of Winter:
“Outstanding…[An] ingeniously twisty plot.”
—Publishers Weekly starred review

“A truly brilliant twist…yet, it is the quality of writing that makes this pulpy novel not just for Christmas but for life.”
The UK Times

“In The Secrets of Winter, [Upson] intricately [weaves] overlapping stories into a satisfying denouement that harkens back to the depthless appeal of the closed-room mystery.”
—Historical Novel Society

Praise for Sorry for the Dead

“Achingly perceptive about forbidden relationships and the unreasoning hatred they can provoke, then as now.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Magnificent…Upson couples an engrossing plot with a nuanced and poignant look at human passions and frailties. Fans of golden-age mysteries will be more than satisfied.”
—Publishers Weekly starred review

“Upson’s eighth Josephine Tey mystery intriguingly combines murder with stories of love in the face of hateful bias. A notable addition to this fine series.”
—Booklist

“A challenging murder mystery…and a strong sense of place combine to make this a fascinating read.”
—Library Journal

“The skilled writing evokes a deep sense of place; the complex character development intrigues.”
—Historical Novels Society
 
“Nuanced [and] sophisticated…it explores thorny social themes with acute insight and polished prose, while ensnaring readers with a gripping plot that keeps them guessing until the last page…A striking novel and a great read.”
—Thriller Books Journal
 
“[A] superior mystery…About the insanity of war, the muddle and panic of middle age and the corrosive effects of loneliness. The end comes with an avalanche of shocking revelations.”
—The Times
 
“Intriguing…Nicola Upson has done something rather clever…She pays homage to the ‘Golden Age’ traditions of the genre and is particularly perceptive about the role of women in that era.”
—Deadly Pleasures Mystery Magazine
