Reviews

  • "'Colourful and wildly entertaining...A wonderful read'"

    GUARDIAN
  • "'A delicious five-course banquet: a murder mystery is succeeded by an abandoned infant weepie, a love story, a social history and, finally, a richly flavoured, full-bodied, 18th-century whodunnit...You'll be kept guessing right up until the last page in this splendid novel'"

    HARPERS & QUEEN
  • "'A compulsive page-turner which will appeal especially to anyone who was spellbound by Charles Palliser's The Quincunx'"
