Reviews of

The Murder of My Aunt: A British Library Crime Classic

“The book fairly races along to its surprising resolution. Fans of vintage crime fiction will hope for more reissues of Hull’s work.”

“That popular reviewer phrase ‘fiendishly clever’ could have been coined to describe this 1934 mystery, reissued by the British Library as part of its Crime Classics series…Powell’s movement toward the dark side will remind readers of Patricia Highsmith’s Strangers on a Train (and the Hitchcock film based on it). Fine psychological acuity, humor, and plotting throughout.”
