"REALLY enjoyed this book. The heroine is a fascinating character with a truly original backstory - former suffragette/ one of the first female police officers. The book zips along nicely and satisfies on every level. It could be argued that this is an important book - detailing a huge step in the woman's movement - and the author very cleverly allows this to inform the character without giving the reader a lecture. Quality from start to finish!" - Michael Malone, Author.
"I love the premise of going back to early 20th Century Dundee, and writing about the first female policewoman in Dundee. The character, Kirsty Campbell is based on this woman. This character is excellent - feisty, single-minded and yet vulnerable. This sums up the women of Dundee in my Grandmother and Great Grandmother's time. Chris Longmuir sets the scene well and her evocative writing brings the Dundee of the time to life. There were still some aspects of this life going strong in my childhood." - Wendy H Jones, Author
