Quotes & Awards

  • “Madeleine’s inquisitive mind and candid voice are enough to keep us reading.”

    New York Times

  • “A convincing thriller…Forensic science in its infancy is absolutely compelling…The main character is courageous and rather daring for the time period. This is a mystery not to be missed.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “Deftly exploring such themes as the struggles between mind and body, science and spirit—without detracting from a gripping plot—the novel transcends its period to contemplate the eternal.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “A one-sit read…made me a confirmed, and impatient, fan of what I hope will be a long-running series.”


  • “Engrossing…Sure to please fans of historical mysteries.”

    Library Journal

  • “Nicola Barber’s narration is perfectly matched to the plot and characters of this mystery. She uses a light breathy voice to highlight Madeleine’s youth and pragmatism and hardens her tones for the other characters, many of whom are men. Although Barber doesn’t employ a French accent in the main body of the narrative, her precise reading style combined with the French names helps to create the illusion of France many years ago. The innocence that her characterization of Madeleine suggests exquisitely contrasts with the dark plot, helping to create the ambiance of this unconventional mystery.”
