    " Thoroughly enjoyable read...and perfect for a holiday. A book that delivers on all the promises made by the blurbs at the back, this is indeed a compelling novel about betrayal, jealousy, lies and other great ingredients. While much of the book uses turn-of-the-last century British politics as a background, this does not make the book any less interesting. Goddard manages to weave in historical events such as the Suffragette movement and the Boer War seamlessly into his plot. Great twists and unpredictable revelations make this an ideal summer indulgence.For once, I was glad the author chose to drag out the novel as I was enjoying each page. "

    " After a very slow start (during which I almost gave up), Past Caring picked up and ended on a satisfying note. The novel features a complex plot with multiple twists and an interesting dual storyline (with settings in WWI-era England as well as the Britain of the 1970s). Unfortunately, the characters are not sympathetic and, with a single exception, are quite unlikeable. I wouldn't recommend this book; a mystery lover could easily read two great mysteries in the time it takes to wade through this single book. "

    " Fabulous plotting. some of the best I've ever seen. But characters were rather stereotyped, and there was way too much use of "had I but known." "

    " Although this Goddard book is not shelved with Mysteries in my bookstore, I had a similar response to this as to most mysteries: too much plot, not enough humanity. "
