Praise for "Swing, Swing Together"
*Winner of the Grand Prix de Litterature Policiere*
Thames-side summer scenes plus real who-and-why puzzle add up to period piece of engaging charm.
"The Sunday Telegraph"
A relaxed and easy-going book, complete with traditional mystery traditionally solved. Enlivening the proceedings is a pert and attractive young lady who knows exactly what she wants.
"The New York Times"
Lovely flavour of the time . . . Naked? Completely, darling. In the buff. It s awfully good fun. And so it all is.
"The Scotsman "
The most light-hearted, but by no means the least compelling, of Lovesey s books.
"The Times""
