Review:

Barnard, an English academic was once the crime writer's crime writer, appreciated for his craft and imagination...the revival of his books, some years after his death, is to be applauded (Maxim Jakubowski lovereading.co.uk)

You can count on a Barnard mystery being witty, intelligent and a joy to read ( Publishers Weekly)

One of our most original and versatile bloodspillers ( The Times)

Delicious . . . an appetising entertainment ( New York Times)
