Review

Praise for Invitation to Die

"Cleverly, as always, creates an intriguing and intelligent plot, multifaceted characters and pitch-perfect period and place. One of the best practitioners of the genre—and one who deserves a wider audience—her latest effort reaffirms her stature and her appeal to discriminating and discerning readers."
Fredericksburg Freelance-Star

 “Cleverly’s characters, from the good-natured but determined Redfyre; to the curmudgeon Detective Superintendent MacFarlane; to Redfyre’s Aunt Hetty, dedicated to winning the vote for woman while attempting to find a suitable wife for Redfyre, are three-dimensional and delightful in their eccentricity . . . Invitation to Die is the perfect book for those who like a little humor served with their murder.”
—New York Journal of Books

“Compelling.”
—Booklist

“Classic English detective (inspector) fiction, Roaring Twenties, Cambridge, and romance: What a divine mix! This second in Barbara Cleverly's John Redfyre series has a delightful set of treats . . . Cleverly is a consistently agile and entertaining storyteller.”
—Kingdom Books

Praise for Fall of Angels

“John Redfyre is a detective for the ages.” 
—Tasha Alexander, New York Times bestselling author of Death in St. Petersburg

“Charmingly old-fashioned . . . Cleverly resolves the mystery with her customary expertise and good taste. But she’s human enough to take the occasional jab at men who make the rules of society, ‘smothering female talent, gagging and belittling their wives and daughters.’”
—The New York Times Book Review

“The inspector’s earnestness is well-tempered by a good deal of wit and charm. And Ms. Cleverly displays a sure knowledge of the personal attitudes, social conditions, science and slang of a fascinating transitional period in history.”
—The Wall Street Journal

“Cleverly, known for the intricate puzzles she creates and the depth with which she draws her sleuths, has another winner in Redfyre. With dry humor to leaven a frightening story, richly imagined characters and a sure sense of place and time, she leaves the reader eager for Redfyre’s next case.” 
—Richmond Times-Dispatch

Barbara was born in the north of England and after graduating from the University of Durham moved to the south. She lived in Suffolk for many years but has now made her home in the middle of Cambridge surrounded by wonderful architecture, coffee shops and bookshops.

Her first novel, 'The Last Kashmiri Rose' starring Joe Sandilands, Scotland Yard detective and WW1 hero, was well received and named a 'Book of the Year' by the New York Times.

The third in the series ('The Damascened Blade') won the C.W.A. Historical Dagger award.

The thirteenth Sandilands book will appear next May 2016.

A book of short stories has just been published: 'The New Cambridge Mysteries' and a fresh project - a swirling Scottish Romance set in the days of the Clearances will be out soon. 'The Corn Maiden' will be available in early December 2015.
