Dr Ruth Dudley Edwards was born and brought up in Dublin, Ireland. Since she graduated she has lived in England, where she has been a teacher, a Cambridge postgraduate student, a marketing executive, a civil servant and, finally, a freelance writer, journalist and broadcaster.An historian and prize-winning biographer, her recent non-fiction includes the authorized history of The Economist, a portrait of the British Foreign Office and a book about the newspaper world of the mid-twentieth century. She uses her knowledge of the British establishment in her satirical crime novels: targets so far include the civil service, gentlemen’s clubs, Cambridge colleges, the House of Lords, the Church of England, publishing, literary prizes and - always - political correctness. She has three times been short-listed for awards from the Crime Writers’ Association. www.ruthdudleyedwards.comReview:
Believable plotting, a memorable cast of characters, and three--count ‘em--three beguiling sleuths in a warm, gently raunchy, crisp, and literate caper. (Kirkus Reviews)
Amiss is bumblingly appealing and howlingly funny. (The Chicago Sun Times)
Adroit, inspiring, and written with a rare lightness of touch. (The London Times Literary Supplement)
Quirky, highly intelligent, and thoroughly entertaining.... (The Washington Post Book World)
