Praise

“Brilliant. . . . A jewel in [James’s] crown.” —Pittsburg-Post Gazette

 

 ”No one is better than James at maintaining this tension between the cozy and the frightful.” —The Washington Post

 

“[James is] a master. . . . Nothing is as it first appears.” —The Boston Globe 

“[I]intricately plotted and suspenseful…. James’ clear-eyed, often sardonic prose describes rooms and people exactly as she sees them.” —Providence Journal

 

“Elegant . . . compelling. . . . Continues the James tradition. . . . She comfortably tackles timeless concerns.” —Chicago Tribune

 

“The ghost of literature past haunts P.D. James’ newest novel. . . . The novel’s pointed descriptions, its gothic settings, and its theme exploring the insidious legacies of family and class violence suggest Charles Dickens may have rested a hand on James’ shoulder while she wrote this terrific literary mystery.” —Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

 

“James is a wonderful writer.” —Chicago Sun-Times

 

“James is in excellent form. . . . [She] offers her readers intelligence, wisdom, dry humor, knowledge both deep and wide-ranging, humanity, compassion, understanding and a wonderful way with words. . . . James is one of Britain’s greatest living writers.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch
