Cradle to Grave Reviews

'After this nod to the traditions of a Christie-style closed-circle detective novel, Templeton gets into her (entirely contemporary) stride, as the private lives of the Scottish detectives are considered in parallel with the suspicious deeds of murder suspects and victims. A satisfying story with a well-balanced combination of human and criminal problems.' * Literary Review *
Templeton can always be relied on to provide a well-written, cleverly plotted, old-fashioned whodunit. * The Times *
'The vivid characterisation, excellent description and a horrible sense of inevitability make Cradle to Grave a riveting read.' * Guardian *
'Templeton can always be relied on to provide a well-written, cleverly plotted, old-fashioned whodunit.' * The Times *
Aline Templeton has created a classic who-dunnit, which could easily have been penned by the queen of crime writing herself - Agatha Christie . . . This is an intelligent, character-driven novel, skilfully plotted and well-paced from its leisurely start to ist moving and unexpected climax. * Peterborough Evening Telegraph *
'A Christie-style closed-circle detective novel.' * Literary Review on Cradle to Grave *
'Loved it' * Val McDermid on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP *
An unalloyed pleasure - an intelligent, character-driven crime novel. * Andrew Taylor on COLD IN THE EARTH *
'Skilfully plotted and well-paced' * Guardian on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP *
'Interesting, atmospheric and - I predict - televisual' * Literary Review on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP *
