About the Author

Alison Bruce is a Royal Literary Fund Fellow at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge. Her five previous DC Gary Goodhew novels are published by Constable & Robinson. A fan of vintage clothes and the rockabilly music scene, for two years she wrote and presented a monthly 1950s music feature on BBC Wiltshire Sound.


Unusual and interesting * The Times * It's all orchestrated (from opening adagio to allegro finale) with authority * The Independent * Bruce is doing for Cambridge what Colin Dexter did for Oxford with Inspector Morse . . . She uses her city just as deftly as Dexter did his, however, and adds subtle touches of feminine intuition and guile. Her plots are deceptively simple, yet describe the frailties of the human heart with a rare skill . . . The death propels Goodhew back into police work. His innate dignity and Bruce's flair make her one of our most interesting crime writers * Daily Mail * Menacing and insidious -- R J Ellory A superb writer -- Steve Mosby As always, Bruce produces a rewarding read * The Times *
