'After this nod to the traditions of a Christie-style closed-circle detective novel, Templeton gets into her (entirely contemporary) stride, as the private lives of the Scottish detectives are considered in parallel with the suspicious deeds of murder suspects and victims. A satisfying story with a well-balanced combination of human and criminal problems.' (Literary Review)

'A Christie-style closed-circle detective novel.' (Literary Review on Cradle to Grave)

'Templeton can always be relied on to provide a well-written, cleverly plotted, old-fashioned whodunit.' (The Times)

'Loved it' (Val McDermid on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP)

An unalloyed pleasure - an intelligent, character-driven crime novel. (Andrew Taylor on COLD IN THE EARTH)

'Skilfully plotted and well-paced . . . This book is a delight, from its leisurely start to the moving and unexpected finish.' (Guardian on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP)

'Interesting, atmospheric and - I predict - televisual' (Literary Review on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP)

[Aline Templeton] has demonstrated that, just when we thought Scotland was saturated with detectives, a strong woman can elbow her way in and find a unique niche. (Scotsman on COLD IN THE EARTH)

'It is always a pleasure to read Aline Templeton, but THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP must surely be her best book to date. Aline's characters are so beautifully drawn . . .' (J Wallis Martin)

A compelling read. (Margaret Yorke on COLD IN THE EARTH)
