"Compelling . . . vintage Perry: a grand, sweeping mystery."--Pittsburgh Tribune-Review "Fast moving and utterly engrossing . . . Perry's Victorian novels attain the societal sweep of Trollope or Thackeray; she has absolute command over both political history and the small fascinating details of everyday life."--Booklist (starred review) "A mystery--a very good one . . . Status, rights, love, and duty are hallmarks of Perry's narratives. Here, they are brought into finer focus, allowing their inherent drama to carry the story forward."--Minneapolis Star Tribune "Perry skillfully explores the gap between the Victorians' love of knowledge and their deepening suspicion that their way of life cannot continue."--The Boston Globe "Delicious political treachery . . . [Perry's] grasp of the economic and social forces of the period is masterly."--Chicago Sun-Times
