Jolly Foul Play in the South China Morning Post

February 16, 2017

As you probably know, I’m currently working on the sixth book in my Murder Most Unladylike series, which is set in Hong Kong. So I was particularly delighted to read Hong Kong newspaper the South China Morning Post‘s review of Jolly Foul Play – it’s wonderful that they’re behind the series so strongly!

The whole review is fantastic – you can read it all below – but my favourite part has to be the last paragraph. John Millen says ‘Agatha Christie may be the Queen of Crime, but Stevens is fast becoming the Queen of Junior Crime. Long may she reign!’

Thank you, John, and thank you South China Morning Post!
