Editorial Reviews

Review

Historical Novel society July 2012
Readers will have no trouble diving in without having read the previous titles in the series. Solving the mystery, however, may be more challenging. This fast-paced page-turner has more twists than a serpent, yet it's easy to follow, and the ending may surprise even the most die-hard mystery fan. Great read! 


​PUBLISHERS WEEKLY 11th June 2012
 
 Gordon-Smith's absorbing sixth Jack Haldean mystery
Fans will enjoy how the intricate plot builds to a particularly satisfying solution.


 
Mystery People
Dolores Gordon-Smith is on sparkling form. Period details are carefully and sparingly used to give the flavour of the 1920s. This is an excellent story which finishes excitingly and with all the loose ends neatly tied up


"A classic mystery in the style of Philip Macdonald’s Anthony Gethryn stories; complex, insouciant and very British"

Format: Hardcover
I had never read a Jack Haldean mystery before 'Trouble Brewing,' a title I began while at a St. Andrews conference, but I expect to read the others soon, too. The author has a wonderful command for idiom and detail of the post WWI United Kingdom, London especially, and this realism was more than sufficient to foster my 'suspension of disbelief' and full entry into the story. I was a goner from about page 5 and read almost straight through to the end (I confess to having looked forward to the transatlantic flight back to the States because of the opportunity I knew my time at Heathrow and on plane would give me to re-enter Haldean's world). Lovers of Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers, and S. S. Van Dine will enjoy 'Trouble Brewing' because of its playful adherence to the demands of the murder mystery genre with brilliant detective, the layers of plot twists, and the wonderful dialogue. I loved the Ellery Queen element and hat-tip in Haldean being a writer cum detective combo. This is an edifying, delightful book and I'll be looking for previous Haldean mysteries that I have to assume are as good.

I have been reading the Jack Haldean mysteries from the beginning. Dolores Gordon-Smith has once again weaved a tale of intrique with surprises along the way.

I have enjoyed this series from the first book; I am a big fan of the "between the world wars" mysteries. The books are well written, the characters interesting and the mystery always intriguing

I ordered the hardcover book, but what I received was a large-print version. There was no indication on the website that hardcover was the same as large print. This has happened before, so watch out what you order.
I returned the book.
