  • The Franchise Affair is an ingenious book ... The essential mystery is wonderfully established; the claustrophobic building-up of the apparently seamless case against the Sharpes is impeccably done

    Sarah Waters
  • Permanent classics in the detective field . . . no superlatives are adequate

    The New York Times
  • A detective story with a very considerable difference. Ingenious, stimulating and very enjoyable

    Sunday Times
  • As interesting and enjoyable a book as they will meet in a month of Sundays

  • Suspense is achieved by unexpected twists and extremely competent storytelling . . . credible and convincing
