Reviews

  • The novel is an absorbing display of craftsmanship, with the transition from the initial theatrical milieu to the Hitchcockian finale accomplished with typical deftness

    Sunday Times
  • An exquisitely crafted tale of dirty dealings among nice English provincial families, this time revolving around a dangerous chemical factory. Goddard is the most idiosyncratic writer around, a wholly English institution with an unmistakable flavour, like cyanide cucumber sandwiches

    The Times
  • Pages seldom turn more quickly then when you are reading Goddard's latest

    Yorkshire Evening Post
  • Twists in the plot come thick and fast

    Guardian
  • Gripping

    Publishers Weekly
