Reviews

Wry, emotionally intelligent and quietly satisfying
Sunday Times
Full of fun and expertly plotted, this is in many ways a cosy read but there is real depth to the way the characters cope not only with changing times but changes in themselves as they mature
Sunday Express
Elly Griffiths, who is better known for her series about the forensic archaeologist Dr Ruth Galloway, relishes depicting a benighted age in which WPCs aren't allowed to drive or even carry radios... The tension - and frustration - builds to an exciting climax
The Times
Brighton remains as alluringly seedy as ever
Irish Independent
In trademark style, Griffiths' plotting is intriguing, multi-layered and full of rich detail, each character is honed to perfection, the social backdrop is immaculately researched, and the frustrations of young women constrained by outdated notions of a man's world are perfectly portrayed
Lancaster Guardian
Elly Griffiths' series set in post-war Brighton are entertaining diversions full of period detail, smart plotting and likeable characters
