Miss Marple meets The Crown--The Bookseller (UK)
"This version of Her Majesty - shrewd, sensible and inquisitive - has much in common with Alan Bennett's royal creation in The Uncommon Reader, and the resulting book, with its mixture of real and imagined characters, is charming..."--The Guardian (UK)
"[A] warm and witty murder mystery ... A delightful and respectful tribute to Windsor's canniest - and most discreet - amateur sleuth."--Woman&Home, Book of the Month selection (UK)
"The Queen is a super-sleuth... Heartwarming and entirely believable... This entertaining novel, written with wit and brio, will appeal to royalists and murder mystery lovers alike."--Daily Express (UK)
"SJ Bennett brilliantly sets up the Queen as detective... Our super-sleuth Queen unites sharp intuition and first-class memory with a lifetime of observation to outwit the police and MI5. She is Miss Marple with a crown."--Daily Mirror (UK)
"The quirkiest, funniest and most-needed crime novel of the year--do not miss."--The Sun (UK)
"[A] pitch-perfect murder mystery... If The Crown were crossed with Miss Marple..., the result would probably be something like this charming whodunnit."--Ruth Ware
'Hilarious, affectionate, and so well observed... I loved it.'--Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat
In this delightful and suspenseful whodunit, author SJ Bennett pulls off the prodigious feat of transforming Queen Elizabeth into an amateur detective. For those of us who love 'The Crown' but think it should have a little more murder in it, this is perfection. And hopefully the first of many.--Peter Swanson, author of Eight Perfect Murders
"The delightful first in a series featuring Queen Elizabeth II as sleuth... Bennett's depiction of the warm, wise, and witty queen and the insights into her royal life are fascinating. Fans of Netflix's The Crown will have fun."--Publishers Weekly
