Quotes & Awards

  • “Anne Perry is definitely visiting Dickensian territory here, as there was no other writer better at depicting the dark side of London life coupled with the plight of human redemption than Charles Dickens. A Christmas Odyssey is a dark tale that will guide readers to the light via the strength of human spirit that each of Perry’s characters possesses.”

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Mary Lauer | 2/16/2014

    " This was the first of Anne Perry's Christmas stories i didn't really enjoy. Too much psychology of why people do dark things and secrets inside outwardly normal people. That's one of her favorite themes ... whited sepulchers all the way, I guess! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Shirley Schwartz | 2/15/2014

    " I have been reading Anne Perry's Christmas novellas since she started bringing them out. I always enjoy them because they offer wonderful vignettes of Victorian Christmases in colourful settings. This book is certainly different than the previous ones. It is set right in London around Christmas time. It is not a simple little murder mystery since we don't find any bodies until almost the end of the book. What we do get is an up close and personal look at the Victorian England Underworld. And now I know where that word came from as the people in this book are truly in the underworld as they live and conduct their business and follow their sexual fantasies underneath London in subterranean tunnels. We have Oliver Rathbone's father Henry and his motley group trying to find Henry Rathbone's friend's son who has disappeared into this world for a number of weeks. I really enjoyed the book as I do all of Anne Perry's work. I recommend these little books to anyone who enjoys holiday mysteries. "

    " Not as well written as most Anne Perry books. Where was her editor? "
