Thanks so much for the heads up, Elizabeth! And if folks go to your post link for your most excellent blog, they will also see a link to buy the issue of "Clues" that discusses the novel at length. Nice to see that Hume is still getting his due 80 years after his death.

Thanks, B. V. Australian author Lucy Sussex (_Women Writers and Detectives in Nineteenth-Century Crime Fiction_, 2010) is working on a book on Hume.
