Thank you so much for following this page and for your interest in my work. I've been a poet all my life, but at the advanced age of fifty-two (passing for fifty one on a good day in bad lighting) I've branched out into detective stories.

Classic story, full of dark humour

An enduring classic which is surprisingly modern even now, full of scandal, gossip, unforgettable characters and a rich vein of dark humour throughout. Highly recommended

Not the best of the Heyer detective novels. Nothing by this author is less than well written but Penhallow sits awkwardly among the lighter, wittier offerings. It has the gothic romance feel of a historical novel, rather than a detective story. The m ...more
