Praise for Not My Blood
“Cleverly is a terrific writer, and she’s also wonderful at setting a scene. Fans know that she supplies the glamour as well as the grime, and she’s one of the most adept puzzle-plot-makers now working. The clues are all there. But you won’t guess who it is until she gives you the final word.”
—The Globe and Mail
“As usual, Cleverly neatly captures the style and feeling of the period between the world wars and provides plenty of mystery, suspense and danger.”
"Barbara Cleverly lives up to her surname with her intricate, erudite and witty books about Scotland Yard detective Joe Sandilands.... Cleverly is a terrific plotter, and her prose highlights a keen sense of place, character and dialogue.... Adding to the pleasure are Cleverly's unpretentious references to literary classics. Fans of P.D. James, take note: Here's a worthy colleague."
“This puzzle presents much reader satisfaction.”
—Jack Batten, Toronto Star
