Praise For…


“Sensitive, beautifully written, disconcertingly familiar.”
Kirkus Reviews on A Cruel Deception

“As with all other Bess Crawford mysteries, this one is historically accurate, entertainingly written, and thoroughly enjoyable.” 
New York Journal of Books on A Cruel Deception

“[Readers] are bound to be caught up in the adventures of Bess Crawford . . . While her sensibility is as crisp as her narrative voice, Bess is a compassionate nurse who responds with feeling.”

The New York Times Book Review

“I love series that follow particular characters over time and through their experiences, so I automatically read the latest installments from . . . Charles Todd.”
Hillary Rodham Clinton, New York Times Book Review

"As always, the mother-son writing team of Charles Todd does a magnificent job with atmosphere and dialogue, all while keeping their good-hearted heroine one step (but only one) ahead of the bad guys .”
BookPage on A Cruel Deception

"As usual, Todd mixes historical verisimilitude with exemplary character design and sharp plotting. Another fine entry in this popular series.”
Booklist on A Cruel Deception

“Intensely personal, as all great stories should be.”
Anne Perry, Internationally Bestselling Author

"Bess is among the most compassionate and intelligent characters, whose observations on life and people are advanced for the era in which she lives.."
The Sun-Sentinel (Florida)

"The Crawford series has been consistently strong, each book as crisply written and suspenseful as the last."
Booklist on An Irish Hostage

“Terrific . . . A Cruel Deception shows that there are still plenty of stories left for Bess Crawford, and I cannot wait to see what happens next."
Book Reporter on A Cruel Deception
