5.0 out of 5 stars An intriguing mystery - Top Review from Bookseeker, UK

I'll be brief. It's not a humorous book - far from it - but humour ripples through it. Set in the university and town of St Andrews in Scotland, maybe shifted a little out-of-phase from the St Andrews you may know, this novel contains a mystery, a religious conundrum, a dystopian conspiracy, a host of unusual characters, and several unexpected plot twists. Elizabeth Mostyn has a lively mind, and I can't wait to read her next novel.
