A classic that needs to be read. Highly recommended. --In Search of the Classic Mystery Novel
A story which plays around with reader expectations, frequently overturning them, but in a way which is pleasing to the reader. The way each solution seems to be overturned one after another has an impressive effect and makes you wonder if you will ever trust a solution given in a mystery novel ever again. --Cross-Examining Crime
The Poisoned Chocolates Case is a delightful read, witty, full of mischief and mocking the conventions of detective fiction. --Carol Westron (Promoting Crime Fiction)
