Review:

" Praise for Georgette Heyer's mystery novels:"

"'We had better start ranking Heyer alongside such incomparable whodunit authors as Christie, Marsh, Tey and Allingham'" ( San Francisco Chronicle)

"'Rarely have we seen humour and mystery so perfectly blended'" ( New York Times)

"'Sharp, clear and witty'" ( The New Yorker)

"'Heyer's characters and dialogue are an abiding delight to me ... I have seldom met people to whom I have taken so violent a fancy from the word "Go"'" ( Dorothy L. Sayers)
