Praise for Georgette Heyer's mystery novels:
'We had better start ranking Heyer alongside such incomparable whodunit authors as Christie, Marsh, Tey and Allingham' (San Francisco Chronicle )
'Rarely have we seen humour and mystery so perfectly blended' (New York Times )
'Sharp, clear and witty' (The New Yorker )
'Heyer's characters and dialogue are an abiding delight to me ... I have seldom met people to whom I have taken so violent a fancy from the word "Go"' (Dorothy L. Sayers ) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
