I like Peters' Cadfael stories so I thought I would like this. It was Ok. I recall lots of grammatical errors etc. I will keep reading her work because generally I enjoy what she as written.

This is one of the most delightful books I have ever read. It is clever, with nicely intertwined story lines, and unpredictable twists and turns. Very hard to put down. The characters are lively and well-defined, as is the plot. Fun to read, with enough suspense to keep you up well past bed-time! I've read a lot of Ellis Peters, and this is my very favorite to date.

This is one of Ellis Peter's best... the story is in (relatively) modern times, and leaves you wondering and on the edge of your seat. It is romance, mystery, thriller all wrapped up together. Very glad I found it, and sorry that there is not a sequel.

Witty and entertaining.

I love mysteries and often can not find books by authors I like in the local library system so I like finding them this way - cheap books even with the high shipping costs

I am an Ellis Peters fan but this novel is just not up to her usual standards. There are overblown and excessive descriptions of just about every location and character in the book. Without the excesses in the descriptions, the book would, at best, be a novella. At one point, two characters, Stan and Beattie, begin walking towards an address. About seven pages of the approximately fifteen recounting the walk, describe streets, buildings and parking lots passed along the way. Shortly after this tour, I abandoned the book - the only Ellis Peters novel which I began but did not finish.

There is also the problem that the two main characters are really irritating people who, at the beginning, have no good reason not to leave everything to the police. If a mystery is going to have amateurs conducting an investigation, there needs to be a good reason for it. Something such as trying to clear themselves or others from being accused of the crime.
for a ride through mid-20th century England you'll never forget, or regret. When an aspiring young art student hitches a ride to get out from under the thumb of his misguided mum, he hops into the driver's criminal scheme and nearly pays dearly for it! A blend of characters, plot and narrative to lead the reader through minds, motives, faces and real places to a satisfying conclusion. Prepare to be charmed. E.P. at her best.
