“This traditional-style mystery evokes life in the English countryside of 1810 along the canal network, using authentic details and conjuring a cast of imaginable residents. Its resolute investigative duo moves the action forward at an urgent pace, and clues multiply and interlock steadily throughout the book’s well-constructed plot.” —Historical Novel Society
