Reviews

"In pages more reminiscent of Edgar Allan Poe than Evelyn Waugh... [Bailey] reminds us why this seemingly insignificant story bears telling." - The New York Times Book Review

"With gripping detail and graceful prose...Bailey's work can best be described as a work of probative history written with the storytelling skills of a latter-day Agatha Christie." - The Richmond Times-Dispatch "Populated with a bevy of real-life aristos who played by their own twisted and privileged set of rules, a searing portrait of family intrigue, dysfunction, and hubris--a la Downton Abbey--emerges." - Booklist
"Bailey is a truly dogged detective... a compelling expose" - Kirkus Reviews "Bailey deserves commendation for her meticulous research as well as her storytelling." - Publisher's Weekly "Gripping. Reads like the best kind of mystery story. It is a tale of mistresses and heirlooms, cowardice and connivance." - The Sunday Times (London) "Compelling. A remarkable piece of research which throws a bright shaft of light on powerful people, hypocrisy and the First World War." - The Guardian
