Gentlemen Formerly Dressed: A Rowland Sinclair Mystery #5

“This book has it all: intrigue among the British aristocracy, the Nazi threat and a dashing Australian hero. I didn’t want it to end!”

Rhys Bowen, author of the New York Times bestselling Royal Spyness and Molly Murphy mysteries, and the #1 Kindle bestseller, In Farleigh Field

“Rowland’s determined attempts to open British eyes to the gathering storm combine mystery, rousing adventure, and chance meetings with eminent figures from Churchill to Evelyn Waugh.”

Kirkus Reviews

“The pleasure of this novel lies…in observing Rowland at dinner with Evelyn Waugh, trading insights with H.G. Wells, and setting Winston Churchill straight on the evils of nationalism. Fans of upper-class sleuths will be in their element.”

Publishers Weekly

“The murder case…is just an entrée into what Gentill does so well: serve up intensely realized period details and reminders of the intersections of crime, art, society, and politics.”


“With fast pacing, madcap characters and intriguing historical personages like H.G. Wells, Evelyn Waugh and Winston Churchill making appearances, Gentlemen Formerly Dressed is historical mystery at its most fun. Sulari Gentill has managed to capture the odd decadence of the British upper classes, in stark contrast to the rising fascist factions in both Germany and England. Fascinating history, entertaining characters and a hint of romance make Gentlemen Formerly Dressed irresistible.”
