Review:

Frances Brody succeeds brilliantly. . . Her post-war world in which making any sort of living is hard grind and where an independent career woman is viewed with hostility is entirely convincing. Kate is a heroine to like and admire. . . Her further adventures are eagerly awaited (The Daily Mail)

Brody's excellent mystery splendidly captures the conflicts and attitudes of the time with well-developed characters (RT Book Reviews)

Reminiscent of the Golden Age mysteries, Murder in the Afternoon delivers an excellent whodunit, an atmospheric period piece, a snapshot of a bygone England and, in Kate, an appealing heroine wtih a complex past (Richmond Times Dispatch)

Book Description:

The third fantastically quirky crime novel featuring amateur sleuth extraordinare Kate Shackleton
