Publisher Review

If a relaxing diversion is of the essence for a good holiday, a Gladys Mitchell novel is a must * Daily Mail * Take yourself back to a time in which ladies swoon, people say, "Dash it" and mixed-up telegrams land you in the wrong place at the wrong time. Murder in the Snow is a chocolate-box delight of a book... Just kick back and enjoy an era when even murder was sprinkled with mischievous innocence -- Kirsty Brimelow * The Times * One of the "Big Three" female mystery novelists, judged the equal of Dorothy L Sayers and Agatha Christie * Independent *
