Reviews

  • "This is an utterly delightful read, made to appear easy, effortless and brilliantly suspenseful, while never becoming predictable or cosy…. I can’t recommend this book highly enough."

    Viv Groskop, Observer
  • "It had me on the edge of my seat. The only disappointment…is when the curtain finally has to come down"

    Peter Stanford, Daily Telegraph (five stars)
  • "Night after night for a happy week, Quinn filled my dreams with glossy surfaces and hidden vices, silk stockings and champagne and intellectual snobberies and long walks home on hard London pavements. Anyone who paces the West End streets will find them more haunted after reading this book."

    Libby Purves, New Statesman
  • "Curtain Call is a beautifully written, absorbing work of historical fiction."

    James Kidd, Independent
  • "Curtain Call goes from gripping you lightly to gripping you tightly. Both in its construction and its characters there is more going on beneath the surface than first appears."

    Dominic Maxwell, The Times
