Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Redolent with Victorian atmosphere, from the hypocritical snobbishness to the rigid social conventions of the time * Tangled Web * A truly unusual mystery... Perry balances plot and character neatly before providing a resolution that few will anticipate * Publishers Weekly * Engrossing... Perry has always excelled in courtroom scenes and arguments between barristers, and she outdoes herself in two dramatic trials ... The book gallops to a dramatic conclusion * Washington Times Daily * Give her a good murder and a shameful social evil, and Anne Perry can write a Victorian mystery that would make Dickens' eyes pop out * New York Times Book Review * The investigation concludes in a hold-your-breath trial... A brilliant Victorian police procedural in which well-realized characters and settings are fascinating in themselves * Booklist * Elegantly constructed and nail-bitingly tense * Good Book Guide * There is a freshness about [Perry's] writing which makes it truly exceptional and I was gripped until the final page. Death on Blackheath was one of the best books I've read this year and I cannot recommend it highly enough * Eurocrime * Anne Perry's Victorian mysteries are marvels of plot construction... truly remarkable * New York Times *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
