Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Full of fun and expertly plotted, this is in many ways a cozy read but there is real depth to the way the characters cope not only with changing times but changes in themselves as they mature.” Sunday Express (London)
“The fifth installment in the Magic Men series is neatly handled by narrator James Langton…Langton’s thoughtful performance offers credible accents that cross social classes, and his women’s voices are completely believable…Langton adds gravitas as well as wit and sparkle to Elly Griffiths’s first-rate mystery.” AudioFile
“With glimpses into the colorful youth culture of the 1960s and flashes of Griffiths’s dry wit, Now You See Them is an enjoyable addition to an entertaining series.” Shelf Awareness
