"I must confess I love these John Rawlings mysteries, and Death and the Cornish Fiddler is up there with the best of them. Deryn Lake goes to great pains to evoke what is a very real sense of the mid-18th century - complete with all its sounds, smells, attitudes and social mores."--Historical Novels Review
