Reviews

Diabolical and delicious, this is the most enjoyable mystery I've read in years.--Sandra Newman, author of The Heavens
Riveting. . . . Positively bursts with inventiveness.--Benjamin Dreyer, author of Dreyer's English
The House on Vesper Sands manages to do a hundred marvelous things at once: funny, eerie, tender, haunting and unsettling, smokily atmospheric, and fantastically enjoyable.--Helen MacDonald, author of Vesper Flights
A thrilling gothic mystery.--TIME
Stellar. . . . Fans of Sarah Perry (not to mention Dickens and Wilkie Collins) will be captivated by this marvelous feat.--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
Chilling. . . . an atmospheric mystery that casts a keen eye on power imbalances and gender inequality.--Foreword Reviews
The House on Vesper Sands is not a Sherlock Holmes mystery, but Paraic O'Donnell's sophomore effort is the next best thing. . . . O'Donnell brings his story's humor and darker themes into richly rewarding alignment.--Shelf Awareness
Dickens is whirling enviously in his grave. . . . Read by a fire on a cold winter evening.--The Irish Times
