Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Norfolk Mystery:"A delightful, idiosyncratic mystery set in the Thirties . There is a touch of Sherlock Holmes and a dash of Lord Peter Wimsey, but the total is put together with a charm that is teasingly precious . Beautifully crafted by Sansom, Professor Morely promises to become a little gem of English crime writing; sample him now" - Daily Mail"Sansom is both celebrating and sending up the golden age of detective novels when, in the 1930s, Dorothy L Sayers and Agatha Christie were the queens of crime . A brilliant first outing that leaves you looking forward to the next maniacal mystery tour" Mark Sanderson, - Evening Standard
