Product description

Review

A mystery of which Agatha Christie would have been proud. . . A beautifully written crime novel (The Times)

Tension builds, bitchery flares, resentment seethes . . . lots of atmosphere, colourful characters and fair clues (Mail on Sunday)

Everyone gets what they deserve in this high-class mystery (Sunday Telegraph)

A witty, well-plotted, absolute joy of a book (Yorkshire Post)

A treat . . . haunting stuff (Woman's Realm)

Wickedly acid, yet sympathetic (Publishers Weekly)

Swift, tense and highly alarming (TLS)

Lots of excellent character sketches . . . and the dialogue is lively and convincing (Independent)

One to savour (Val McDermid)

Hard to praise highly enough (The Sunday Times)

Her books are not just great whodunits but great novels in their own right (Julie Burchill)

Enlivened by a very sardonic wit and turn of phrase, the narrative drive never falters (Birmingham Post)

Read her and you'll be astonished . . . very sexy, very hip and very funny (Scotsman)

The mystery is intriguing, the wit shafts through like sunlight . . . do not miss this book (Family Circle)

'The intricate plot is fascinating and the clutch of characters will keep you guessing whodunit for ages' Woman's Day, 12/4/04 (Woman's Day)

'[A GHOST IN THE MACHINE] allows us to admire the novelist's wit and her ability to create exasperatingly real characters before getting down to the policing' Sunday Telegraph, 28/3/04 (Sunday Telegraph)

'The mystery is intriguing, there are some interesting twists that kept my guessing to the end...a good read' Mystery Women (Mystery Women)

'A witty, well-plotted, absolute joy of a book' Yorkshire Post, 6/4/04 (Yorkshire Post)

'What a wonderful 'village' mystery. The characters of Forbes Abbot are brilliant. A fascinating storyline of quality detection' North Wales Chronicle, 4/3/2004 (North Wales Chronicle)

'Put your tongue firmly in your cheek, turn each page genteely, and revel in the uncomplicated and thoroughly faux-English characters Graham creates' Tangled Web UK (Tangled Web UK)

'Written with great relish and attention to detail, the descriptions of high summer and village life are glorious, and there is much droll humour here as Graham chronicles the ills of the modern world with a ruthless keen eye' Manchester Evening News 10/4/04 (Manchester Evening News)

'A curious whodunit in that it as far more discursive than normal and the characters more carefully drawn' Country Life, 18/3/04 (Country Life)

'Splendidly enjoyable' Publishing News, 17/9/04 (Publishing News)

'A truly creepy ending' Scotsman, 1/5/04 (Scotsman)

'Well-written, intelligently plotted, sharply observed, and leavened with wit' East Anglian Daily Times Suffolk magazine, April 2004 (East Anglian Daily Times Suffolk magazine)

'The entertainment level is top notch' Northern Echo, 16/3/2004 (Northern Echo)
