Described by Philip Larkin as her tour de force , The Rising of the Moon shows Gladys Mitchell at her mordant and morbid best. Every full moon a ripper runs amok on the streets of Brentford. Masters Simon and Keith Innes set out to catch the killer under the disturb ing guidance of Mrs Bradley.
A delightfully subversive read - sharp and shy - Ioved it. Liza Cody
"One of the dozen best crime novels that I know" Edmund Crispin
