Review

Readers waiting for another Christie redux will find great pleasure in this thoroughly enjoyable first novel (Booklist)

A classic murder mystery with as complex a plot as one could hope for and a most engaging pair of amateur sleuths whom I look forward to encountering again in future novels (Charles Osborne, author of The Life and Crimes of Agatha Christie)

Roberts is convincing on period detail and crafts prickly characters...while in fact the period parallels Dorothy L.Sayers, Roberts goes his own way to create - or rather, recreate - a vision of those troubled times (Poisoned Pen)

This is a witty and meticulous recreation of the class-ridden middle England of the 1930s... a perfect example of golden-age mystery traditions with the cobwebs swept away, for the many readers who like their sleuthing elegant and their sex and violence concealed behind the curtains (Guardian on Bones of the Buried)

A fine roman a clef homage to the period country house mystery (Reviewing the Evidence)

Praise for David Roberts:

Roberts just keeps getting better with each book ... highly recommended for fans of Love in a Cold Climate and Gosford Park (Publishers Weekly)

A gripping, richly satisfying whodunit with finely observed characters, sparkling with insouciance and stinging menace (Peter James)

A really well-crafted and charming mystery story (Daily Mail)

A perfect example of golden-age mystery traditions with the cobwebs swept away (Guardian)

Book Description

It is 1935 and the Duke of Mersham is hosting a party at his country house, when one of the guests is poisoned. Was it an accident or something more sinister? The Duke's younger brother, Lord Edward Corinth, and journalist Verity Browne, set out to investigate.
