This is a strangely compelling story. It moves slowly, a grim tale told by three women whose lives become entangled through their relationships with the men they love. Apparent strangers, they are intimately and fatally related. The abandoned wife, the second wife and the mistress. The thriller gradually emerges, grasps you and holds you until the very end. Highly recommended.

Riveting story - history brought to life. This trilogy captures the essence of a turbulent period that is the background to the present day tensions between Scotland and England. A masterful performance by Nick McArdle - never intrusive, carefully nuanced character development and almost flawless delivery.

From known to unknown and back again, enough facts to make it real and a story that weaves in and out, Terry Hayes has taken the geo-political reality with which we are familiar and entwined within it a minefield of a murder mystery, a terrorist plot and meticulous, intelligent and intuitive investigators to deliver a non-stop ride. A thriller to lose yourself in. Read it - you won't be disappointed.

Georgette Heyer knew her period well and was a defining exponent of the Regency romance genre. Sprig Muslin is a delightful escapade and Sian Phillips certainly does it justice. A most enjoyable book to knit by!
