Booklist Reviews 2012 October #1

Dorothy Martin, the American-born schoolteacher and amateur sleuth who makes her home in England, returns in this new entry in a popular series. On a visit to Buckingham Palace, Dorothy and her husband, Alan, a retired chief constable, discover a dead body in a private section of St. James's Park. As it turns out, Dorothy and Alan's friend, a former chief inspector, knew the victim, and the friend asks Dorothy if she could, discreetly, try to find out what happened to the victim. Fans of British cozies will enjoy this one very much (although readers who prefer more action might find it a bit lethargic. Martin isn't quite as engaging a character as Hilda Johansson, heroine of Dams' other series, and the contemporary setting isn't quite as compelling as Hilda's early-1900s environment, but Martin's fans—of all her work—should be pleased.

LJ Reviews 2012 November #1

Once again, Dorothy stumbles—literally—into a murder investigation. This one might have royal connections. Her 12th case (after The Evil that Men Do) is perfect for those seeking British-infused cozies. [See Prepub Alert, 7/2/12.]

PW Reviews 2012 September #1

Dams's underwhelming 12th mystery featuring American-born, English-residing amateur sleuth Dorothy Martin (after 2011's The Evil That Men Do) takes Dorothy and her husband, former Chief Constable Alan Nesbitt, to London to attend a ceremony honoring their friend Jonathan Quinn, a Scotland Yard inspector, for rescuing a child from a burning building. Strolling afterwards in St. James's Park, the three discover a young woman's body. Only after Dorothy has reported their gruesome find to the police does Jonathan admit that he knows the victim, Melissa Higgins. Jonathan is worried, though, that drawing attention to Melissa's illegitimate birth could cause Melissa's mother, Jemima, his close friend, to lose her job at Buckingham Palace. Dorothy thus decides to investigate the death on her own. A heroine who continually complains about her enviable travels may annoy some readers, though London's picturesque sights lend some flair to this cozy before a disappointingly rushed resolution. Agent: Kimberley Cameron, the Kimberley Cameron Agency. (Nov.)
