Taylor's fifth witty and intricate story about amiable, amoral William Dougal moves him even closer to the top of the British first division.
<i>Time Out</i>
Andrew Taylor is a master story-teller.
<i>Daily Telegraph</i>
A wonderful book, funny and inventive, well plotted and characterised. Dougal, the not quite amoral, redeemingly imperfect Machiaval and skinflint child of fortune, is one of the most likeable sleuths on the circuit
<i>Oxford Times</i>
Sparky and humorous writing
<i>The Times</i>
Neatly put together, witty and fast-moving.
<i>The Sunday Times</i>
