From the first Robertson's books have combined intricate plotting with vivid reconstruction of Georgian society. This one is no exception — The Sunday Times
[A] gripping blend of the Georgian gothic and the forensic thriller — Independent
A true force in historical fiction — Daily Mail
The pleasure lies in the steady unfurling of a period crime series (1871) that doesn't rely on declamatory villains and rhubarbing local colour — Christopher Fowler
Stylish, enigmatic and wonderfully atmospheric. It's a story of secrecy and shame, reason and passion, that resonates long after you reach the final page — Francis Wheen
Deliciously chilling and dangerous. The plot and characters are absolutely mesmerising, drawing you in to their world like the opium itself — Karen Maitland, author of Company of Liars
The Paris Winter is in another class altogether... The vivid description of life in the Belle Époque - whether of the rich upper classes and their servants; or students, artists and members of the Parisian underworld - the plausible plot, and a sensitive understanding of art and artists make this a fascinating novel that I read in a single sitting and admired greatly — Literary Review
Robertson makes a welcome return to 18th Century England and the historical mystery genre... The author does an especially terrific job with day-to-day detail... a juicy read — Herald, Dublin
