Reviews

"An entertainment. . . . [The princesses] are written with a republican zest, made all the keener by the knowledge that royalty, for all its anachronistic irrelevance, sells."
--The New York Times

"As ever, Black's gifts of rich description and deft characterization are on display. . . . When you're done binge-watching The Crown, pick up this multifaceted wartime thriller."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Tantalizing. . . . Black is a pleasure to read, particularly his descriptions of the lackadaisically maintained estate [and] the young royals' developing personalities. . . . [The Secret Guests] takes the time to observe the specific ways human weakness and caprice can affect history."
--Air Mail

"The Downton Abbey of suspense novels . . . brushed with the fairy tale dust of royalty."
--KATU
