"Enjoyable for mystery, thriller, and historical fiction readers, this is also recommended to fans of all things Tudor." - Library Journal
"Engrossing." - The Spectator (UK)
"Atmospheric and erudite ... Not since Umberto Eco penned The Name of the Rose has a historical crime novelist captured so perfectly a people and their place, and harnessed them with such intelligence and credibility to shadowy tales of politics, misdeeds, murder and mystery." - Lancashire Evening Post (UK)
"An enthralling historical crime novel packed with details of life in Tudor England. Highly recommended." - Irish Independent
"Compulsively readable and highly satisfying. ... An entirely engrossing novel with an intriguing twist." - Daily Express (UK)
