Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Fans will be pleased that it is an absolute treat: civilized, intelligent, and spellbinding…Channeling the authority Sayers employed right up to her final book, Walsh shows that she has the full measure of the imperishable Lord Peter and the hyper-intelligent Harriet Vane.” Daily Express (London)
“A pitch-perfect Golden Age mystery; not a pastiche but a gem of a period puzzle that belongs on the shelf beside the Wimsey originals.” The Financial Times
“Walsh successfully re-creates the tone and personalities of the originals and plausibly depicts the main characters later in life. Fans of literate period mysteries will clamor for more.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Small delights include glimpses of the three Wimsey sons, all bright and beautiful, and the loyal Bunter moving with changing mores but steadfast affection.” Booklist (starred review)
