Adrian McKinty, Edgar Award and Ned Kelly Award winner:
"Brian Stoddart's Le Fanu books are one of my favourite current series. Always superbly well researched & supremely witty these books capture colonial era India's (particularly Madras) glamour, mores, hypocrisy, racism & skullduggery with delightful aplomb. Highly recommended!"
Ngaio Marsh Award judges, 2017:
"Stoddart is a marvellous prose stylist with an impressive command of dialogue, in particular; he uses setting superbly, captures the political absurdities of the place and time, and subtly foreshadows the loss of a colonial grip in the region. First-class crime writing."
