"McPherson is clearly a stickler for research"

There is a lot to recommend Catriona McPherson’s stylish detective series featuring Dandy Gilver, the wealthy wife of a Scottish landowner who runs private investigations in the interwar years. The historical detail is pin sharp and, as in true murder cases, it is the mundanities of everyday life which investigations throw up which evoke the age, rather than any evolution in the criminal dispatching of one’s fellow humans.
