A brilliant crime story with many a twist as the truth unravels. The characters are real, and the setting and period well researched. It would make a brilliant film. I've just bought the next Kate Shackleton story, 'A Medal for Murder.'

This historical mystery has everything going for it. Feisty heroine, not too young, thank you, a missing husband, cameo rolls of famous people, and a mysterium detta in the idyllic english country. I'm definately getting the other boots in the serie.

How refreshing to read a detective story set in the 1920s! Frances Brody has researched the era extensively and Kate Shackleton is a charming heroine whose character will doubtless be revealed in further books in the series.

First time of reading this author and I've enjoyed it but has seemingly been a little lengthy descriptive, but in a first of a series you can expect that. Looking forward to the second book.

Easy to read,almost light hearted but a very surprising plot. Several twists and turns to the plot and a true " who dunnit ?" Looking forward to reading more from this author.

This is an excellent book especially for a first crime novel by an author who knows how to research her work correctly. The plot is well thought out and holds the reader's interest all the way through. I look forward to reading the next Kate Shackleton Crime Story.

Not for me sadly. Too slow going. Stuck it out for almost 100 pages before giving up.

I tried to persevere with this, but gave up after page 12 - even that was a struggle. Author seems to need to describe in aching detail almost every piece of clothing worn by heroine, every room she enters (or is about to) then proceeds to tell us exactly what any other person is the room is wearing/how they are sitting/colour of sofa, etc, etc. Seems at great pains to prove she has researched the period by then cramming every detail onto every page. Characters dull, wooden, dialogue ditto. Overall wasn't worth the effort on behalf of writer or reader.
