"Really a minor gem ... witty and sophisticated" ~ Newcastle Morning Herald
"Murder has never been this funny. A spoof of all crime thrillers ... it is good clean mirth all the way. The quick, smart, extremely well timed dialogue of Jack Sharkey comes through loud and clear [with] never a dull moment" ~ Times
"There are secret chambers, secret panels and trap lids galore. They're all operated by the most ridiculous contrivances and gloriously mucked up ... A high, mad melodrama" ~ Frank Harris
"Delightful ... constant humor ... A good mixture of Agatha Christie, Monty Python, and Abbot and Costello!" ~ Canon, Memphis
