More About the Author

Catriona McPherson was born in the village of Queensferry in south-east Scotland in 1965 and educated at Edinburgh University. She left with a PhD in Linguistics and spent a few years as a university lecturer before beginning to write fiction. The first Dandy Gilver novel was short-listed for the CWA Ellis Peters Historical Dagger 2005 and the second was long-listed for the Theakston's Crime Novel of the Year Award 2007. Catriona writes full-time and divides her time between southern Scotland and northern California.

Product Description

Review

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)

Book Description

A delightful Dandy Gilver mystery.

I enjoyed this as much as the earlier Dandy Gilver books, possibly more. It is, as usual, a barely-believable romp, but Dandy is such a convincing character - with Nanny’s severe upbringing continually conflicting with her wistful longings for silk clothes and bedroom fires - and the twists and turns of the plot are so page-turning that the unlikelihood of a school where the girls are better treated than the teachers and the head is raking in money by means only discovered in the last pages only adds to the fun.

I loved it. I've loved them all. Good stories, intelligent writing, great characters.
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.
