Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Packed with lust and illicit passion.” Sunday Times (London)
“The portrayal of Tey is both sympathetic and perceptive…Upson is chillingly effective at showing how good intentions may lead to evil consequences…A fine addition to a promising series.” Spectator (London)
“Carefully plotted, full of historical information, local color and meticulous psychological analysis.” Literary Review (UK)
“Within a relatively short period, Nicola Upson has established herself as one of the most inventive and unusual of crime writers…It’s easy to feel that Tey herself would be delighted with these fictitious imaginings of her life.” Barry Forshaw, author of The Rough Guide to Crime Fiction
