5.0 out of 5 stars dancing to the pipers 31 Aug 2002
this is a book you need to read at least twice to appreciate all the apparently unimportant details that lead up to the denouement that still, after having read the book about 10 times,makes me gasp! I love Kate Fentons other books too but this one is much my favourite. If you can get your hands on it. read it read it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun 26 Jan 2001
I only discovered Kate Fenton's novels a couple of years ago, but she immediately became one of my favourite authors. She is quite unlike anyone else I've read, yet with elements of most of the authors I like - Barbara Vine, Elizabeth Peters, even Barbara Pym. I have only two criticisms of this novel. The first is that it is unnecessarily long. By the last 50 pages you've got a pretty good idea which way things are going to go, and you feel the author might as well get on and tell us. Having said that, it's great entertainment. Secondly, I think the moral standpoint is slightly questionable - but I'm sure many people would disagree.
