About the Author:

Hannah March was born and brought up in Peterborough and was a student on the University of East Anglia MA Course in Creative Writing under Malcolm Bradbury and Angela Carter.

Review:

'There are several suspects, which gives March the opportunity to show different levels of society and, through her excellent dialogue, she is particularly successful in displaying the attitudes and mores of the period' Sunday Telegraph THE DEVIL'S HIGHWAY: 'Exuberant' The Times 'THE COMPLAINT OF THE DOVE has more than a charismatic protagonist. March has created a felicitously realised Georgian mystery, and setting a detective novel in the age of Moll Flanders is a masterstroke... THE DEVIL'S HIGHWAY is equally as exuberant' The Times 'A clever and accomplished first novel...witty and convincing; for fans of period dramas such as Moll Flanders and Tom Jones, this will slip down like a cup of sherbet.' Scotland on Sunday; 'A gloriously rich tale of London at its grandest and seamiest, well told, at a cracking pace.' Newcastle upon Tyne Evening Chronicle; 'Written well with a great deal of self-assurance. I liked the period detail and the characterisation of the large cast of suspects' Deryn Lake, Shots 'There are several suspects, which gives March the opportunity to show different levels of society and, through her excellent dialogue, she is particularly successful in displaying the attitudes and mores of the period' -- SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
