Reviews of

Gallows Court

“Exceptional series launch from Edgar–winner Edwards…The labyrinthine plot is one of Edwards’s best, and he does a masterly job of maintaining suspense, besides getting the reader to invest in the fate of the two main characters. Fans of Edgar Wallace’s classic Four Just Men won’t want to miss this one.”

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Highly atmospheric, spine-tingling fun…the way that Edwards keeps deepening the creepiness of this mystery until the very end is utterly stunning.”

Booklist (starred review)

“Martin Edwards crafts vivid descriptions of both character and setting that embed the reader into the scene in a way few writers can achieve.”
