Reviews

Epsom Derby is the subject of an intricately plotted and stylistically burnished crime caper. Taylor builds the suspense, sending his characters to the racetrack for the final event. Whether he intends Tiberius to win or to lose remains, like much else in this tantalizing novel, mysterious almost to the end.
Derby Day is a triumphant success. In this unputdownable Victorian romp Taylor enjoyable proves himself to be one of the finest of our 21st-century novelists.--A. N. Wilson
