Reviews

Diane

- The Hampstead mystery

Very good!

- Dated but interesting

This book has a twisty plot that maintains the reader's interest, although its structure doesn't always make the most of its revelations. The main reader is a bit wooden but this somehow adds to the period feel of the story. It's fascinating to see early examples of the murder mystery genre.

- Great

One of the hidden gems of the site. The main reader LR is really, really excellent too!
