"'A classic murder mystery with as complex a plot as one could hope for and a most engaging pair of amateur sleuths whom I look forward to encountering again in future novels.' (Sweet Poison) Charles Osborne, author of The Life and Crimes of Agatha Christie 'Roberts' use of period detail... gives the tale terrific texture. Recommend this one heartily to history-mystery devotees.' (Sweet Poison) Booklist 'This is a witty and meticulous recreation of the classridden middle England of the 1930s... a perfect example of golden-age mystery traditions with the cobwebs swept away, for the many readers who like their sleuthing elegant and their sex and violence concealed behind the curtains.' (Bones of the Buried) Guardian 'Dangerous Sea is taken from more elegant times than ours, when women retained their mystery and even murder held a certain charm. The plot is both intricate and enthralling, like Poirot on the high seas, and lovingly recorded by an author with a meticulous eye and a huge sense of fun.' --Michael Dobbs, author of Winston's War and Never Surrender"
