Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Anne Perry’s prim Victorian mysteries, steeped in a world of antimacassars, proper high teas, and elderflower wine, have a certain antique charm.” Entertainment Weekly
“Well-written…Perry does a nice job of weaving in themes of forgiveness and redemption without being heavy-handed.Publishers Weekly
“The splendid Terrence Hardiman seems to get even better and better as a narrator…Setting, especially weather, plays an important part in Perry’s atmospheric novels, and Hardiman aptly delivers the author’s portrait of an English village in the late nineteenth century. This is perfect for Perry fans and those who simply want to enjoy an exceptional performance.” AudioFile
“Engaging characters, a vivid sense of time and place, and a cozy setting add enjoyment to this Victorian mystery.” Booklist
“In Perry’s enthralling page-turner, a quiet Christmas holiday becomes riddled with mystery and murder…A nineteenth-century English vicar and his wife, are intelligent, believable characters whose amateur-sleuthing efforts grow increasingly intriguing as they find themselves in harm’s way.” RT Book Reviews
