Book Review of The Beggar’s Opera in The Millstone

Another great review of The Beggar’s Opera, this one in The Millstone. The reviewer called it an “absorbing, gritty read.” You can read the full review here, but here are some extracts:

“Inspector Ricardo Ramirez of the Havana Major Crimes Division investigates the death of a young street boy … The case, seemingly straight forward at first, leads the reader through a series of convoluted twists and turns, just the thing for a rainy afternoon in front of the fire.”

“Looking back, you can see how skilfully the author has crafted her story, even to the last surprise. ”

“The cast of characters comes convincingly alive …. All are achingly human, and  the investigation is characterized by false assumptions, duplicity and self interested politics, which engage the reader.”

“Peggy Blair has a future ahead of her as a mystery writer but topping this book will be a challenge.”
