Review:

"Crime writing's best kept secret" ( Scotsman)

"If a relaxing diversion is of the essence for a good holiday, a Gladys Mitchell novel is a must...a crime writer who, in her day, ranked with Christie and Sayers" ( Daily Mail)

"The Great Gladys" ( Philip Larkin)

"There are many other good detective writers...there is Gladys Mitchell with her fascinating Mrs Bradley, ugly as a toad and armed with the latest up-to-date theories of psychology" (Agatha Christie Guardian)

"Particularly delightful… I am delighted to have made Mrs Bradley's acquaintance" (Nicholas Lezard Guardian)
