'The Queen of the Georgian historical mystery' The Times 'An effervescent tale... the author organises her large cast and colourful background with skill and gusto through a racily readable drama.' Mail On Sunday 'The charm of Lake's series is the astringent relationship between her two protagonists, which pulls off the trick of appearing both modern and historically persuasive.' The Times 'Lake brings eighteenth century England to life in a fine colourful style... Georgette Heyer... but with the knickers off.' Yorkshire Post
