Editorial Review"The first in a planned series introduces a refreshingly complex heroine and adds a fine feeling for the postwar period." --Kirkus "This well-plotted and atmospheric tale is enriched by technical expertise and a vividly imagined Yorkshire setting. Kate Shackleton joins Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs in a sub-group of young female amateur detectives who survived and were matured by their wartime experiences.... They make excellent heroines." --Literary Review "Dying in the Wool has a winning heroine, a fresh and fascinating setting, richly detailed and well-woven into the plot, and a mystery that twists and tightens and twists again, before pulling together to a surprising and satisfying solution." --Catriona McPherson, author of Dandy Gilver and the Proper Treatment of Bloodstains "Reminiscent of Dorothy L. Sayers and Agatha Christie with a thoroughly likeable protagonist and a plot that held me to the end." --Mignon F. Ballard, author of the Miss Dimple Kilpatrick Mystery Series "Brody, who has written historical fiction, presents a carefully researched setting, with accurate references to the popular culture of the day and clear explanations of the dyeing and weaving processes at the mill." --Booklist "Excellent.... Ms. Brody does an excellent job of keeping the reader on the edge of their seat. DYING IN THE WOOL has a lot of unanticipated twists and turns. I was completely surprised at the end!" "Brody's winning tale of textile industry shenanigans is shot through with local color." --The Independent (UK) "Highly entertaining... Frances Brody writes with charm and yet knows how to keep the reader guessing at every stage of the book. If you like pure detective novels you will love this." --Gazette & Herald (UK) "The story, with its secure setting in the richly-detailed woollen industry, is an excellent read. The characterization is strong and convincing and the sense of period well conveyed." --Mystery Women "The background detail of milling and dyeing is spot on ... as is her ear for the West Riding accent and dialect. The plot twists nicely and the denouement was, to me, unexpected." --Country Life "This is whimsical, colorful stuff and readers will warm to the entrepreneurial yet fragile Kate." --Take a Break "Kate Shackleton is a delightful leading character. The flavor of First World War England is beautifully portrayed. The world of the mill and the mill owner has gone, but in this book it is easy to image what it must have been like." "Dying in the Wool is a delightful book... the descriptive detail of the countryside and small village of Bridgestead is so vivid I could literally have been there. Kate Shackleton is a wonderful character and I connected with her immediately." "The 1920s are a fascinating and under-used period for new crime fiction, so it's a particular pleasure to have Frances setting her story at that time. Kate Shackleton is a splendid heroine ... I'm looking forward to the next book in the series!" --Ann Granger
