"There's a tongue-in-cheek quality to the cast of characters in this book that reminds me of the parody movie Murder by Death HD.

"I was very impressed. Especially the ending. Kept me guessing!"—Bill, via reader e-mail

"I liked this one. It's not overly long, but well written and has many twists, right until the very end. This should appeal to people who like good old-fashioned detective stories without the old-fashioned settings. Yes, it does contain a lot of mentions of handbags and fashion, but that doesn't mean it's not a good read for men, too. It also contains mentions of vegetarian sausages :-) All in all, time well spent, I thought."—Martin Kubler, via amazon.co.uk
