Reviews

"'Gripping...Gleeson's evocation of the period is meticulously researched and her plotting is neat and controlled...a good yarn'" * Independent on Sunday * "An irresistible follow-up to acclaimed THE GRENADILLO BOX: 'Colourful and wildly entertaining...A wonderful read'" * Guardian * "'As attractively crafted as the box itself'" * Independent on Sunday * "'A delicious five-course banquet: a murder mystery is succeeded by an abandoned infant weepie, a love story, a social history and, finally, a richly flavoured, full-bodied, 18th-century whodunnit...You'll be kept guessing right up until the last page in this splendid novel'" * Harpers & Queen * "'A compulsive page-turner which will appeal especially to anyone who was spellbound by Charles Palliser's The Quincunx'" * Daily Mail *
