Publishers Weekly, 2012-12-24 Detective Joe Sandilands returns in this puzzling, haunting mystery, in which he investigates a death and multiple disappearances at a boarding school circa 1933. The kicker: the boy who tips him off to the case could in fact be his illegitimate son. As Sandilands, narrator Simon Prebble is charming yet stern. His British accent is perfect for this brooding tale. Prebble's character interpretations are subtle, yet accurate and believable; his acting chops and colorful pallet of tones and voices are on display from the get go. Perfect for both young and old, this audio edition is an enjoyable ride. A Soho Crime hardcover. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
Publishers Weekly, 2012-06-04 Cleverly's suspenseful 10th Joe Sandilands mystery (after 2011's The Blood Royal), set in 1933, makes the most of its intriguing setup. After Jackie Drummond, a nine-year pupil at St. Magnus School, in Seaford, defends a classmate from a bullying form master, Mr. Rapson, he's sent to Rapson's office for caning, but the brute fails to show up. On Jackie's way back to his room, Rapson grabs Jackie, who pushes his attacker down the stairs in self-defense, with apparently fatal results. Jackie flees to London to seek help from unorthodox Scotland Yarder Sandilands, a friend of his parents, who are in India. Sandilands soon learns that a stabbing, not an accidental fall, was the real cause of Rapson's death, but his efforts to get to the bottom of the matter draw the unexpected interest of some members of the government. The surprisingly horrific truth behind the murder helps to make this one of the better recent installments. Agent: Juliet Burton, Juliet Burton Agency. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
