MacLean's characters are subtle and convincing . . . could challenge C.J. Sansom for dominion of historical crime * Sunday Times on The Seeker * Damian Seeker really comes into his own in this novel . . . the plot navigates the waters of history with masterful effect -- Waterstones bookseller Damian Seeker [is] one of the most appealing heroes I've come across in quite some time . . .

MacLean, a fine writer with a terrific grasp of history and character * For Winter Nights * MacLean's light touch portrait of a hard man with a softer core is what makes these books so memorable * The Times * MacLean skilfully weaves together the disparate threads of her plot to create a gripping tale of crime and sedition in an unsettled city * Sunday Times * Excellent at conveying the insecurities and unsettling memories that bedevil Cromwell's dying Protectorate, the author brings a fresh perspective and gold-plated research to a period which has been unfairly eclipsed by the popularity of the Tudors * Daily Mail *
