Reviews

  • Murdoch is at the height of her powers in this novel, combining a complex plot with a heartrending analysis of the meaning of love

    Good Book Guide
  • The best all-round novel that I’ve read. It’s a brilliant crime novel and a love story that’s beautifully written

    Sophie Hannah, Daily Express
  • A source of wonder and delight...No summary can do justice to the rich intricacy of character and incident with which Miss Murdoch crowds every page

    Spectator
  • This is great Murdoch. It rings as clear as The Bell...her humour is all the more achingly funny because she keeps it on the edge of our vision

    Daily Mail
  • Iris Murdoch's marvellous, heroic novel...A gloriously rich tale

    The Times
