Reviews

"In The Late Scholar, Ms. Walsh once more succeeds in emulating and extending her late inspiration's unusual mixture of drama and foolishness, poetry and prattle, local color and grim undercurrents. " --The Wall Street Journal "Cleverly plotted....Walsh's pitch-perfect re-creation of the charismatic leads is a delight. Sayers fans can only hope for more." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) "An entertaining and convoluted puzzle for readers who enjoy Golden Age mysteries." --Library Journal "Delicious. " --Booklist (starred review) "Fans will eagerly welcome back their beloved sleuth and enjoy seeing Harriet hold her own in a thoughtfully constructed mystery." --Kirkus Reviews "Faithful to Sayers' legacy and amplified by Walsh's own considerable talents, The Late Scholar offers a smart plot, a look at beloved characters' later lives and an evocative examination of academia. Readers will hope that it's not the last installment in a rewarding and authentic continuation of a cherished series." --Richmond Times-Dispatch "If you love the books of Dorothy L. Sayers as I do, you will be elated to learn that Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane are at their scholarly and detective best in [The Late Scholar]....Somewhere Sayers is applauding." --Mystery Scene
