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"

    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
