The spirit of Ellery Queen lives on in a new character from Jim French Productions, that prolific provider of radio mysteries. The sleuth in Hilary Caine Mysteries...as written by M. J. Elliott and played by Karen Heaven, is an engaging and original character... in the mode of Golden Age sleuths like Lord Peter Wimsey, Philo Vance, Roger Sheringham, Reggie Fortune, and the early EQ. (the similarity of names, as made clear in the first episode, is a deliberate homage.) The plots are ingenious and fairly clued...the tone humorous and ironic. --Jon Breen, from Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine June 2006 Issue
