‘Intricate and enthralling’

Michael Dobbs

‘Lovers of golden-age crime fiction need mourn no longer. Roberts takes us back to the world of the aristocratic sleuth.’

Natasha Cooper

‘Roberts has captured brilliantly the light and shade of pre-war Britain under the shadow of Nazism. A gripping, richly satisfying whodunit, with finely observed characters, sparkling with insouciance and stinging menace.’

Peter James

‘Roberts pays meticulous attention to period detail and the result is a really well-crafted and charming mystery story.’
