More About the Author
This is a beguiling book whose 1920s setting, light tone, and beautifully developed main characters draw you ever deeper into the central puzzle, or perhaps puzzles, which take on an increasingly dark tone as the story progresses. The background is utterly convincing, and there is a considerable amount of pleasure in simply learning more about Scotland in the 1920s. Most important of all, however, is that this is a thoroughly enjoyable read whose whose twists and turns are genuinely intriguing. An absolutely outstanding murder mystery... (UndiscoveredScotland.co.uk)
1930s lady detective Dandy Gilver lands a sleuthing gig in a setting straight out of Enid Blyton. Cosier than a pair of WI-knitted mittens, 'Corpses' serves up murder most foul - and is also good for several giggles. (Time Out)
Dandy Gilver is: (-)
Brisk, baffled, heroic, kindly, scandalised and - above all- very funny. (Guardian)
A winning heroine (Independent)
The most engaging and ingenious crime-cracker I've met in ages. (Scotland on Sunday)
Wonderful . . . a lesson to us all. (Scotsman)
A delightful heroine (My Weekly)
The delightful new Dandy Gilver mystery.See all Product Description

If you're someone of great age, like myself, or a film buff, then think William Powell and Myrna Loyesque dialogue.
They will not change the world at large, they will not change your life. But they will brighten up your day.
Put the kettle on, dig out the shortbread, enjoy a well written yarn with more than it's fair share of humour (I admit, I'm sick and tired of hard boiled, flawed character types...you may gather them together and put them where the sun doesn't shine.)
Hooray for Dandy.
