Sarah Caudwell was the pen name of Sarah Cockburn, born in Cheltenham, England, to a family of journalists and political writers. She graduated in Classics from University of Aberdeen, read law at the University of Oxford, and lectured on the law for several years. In 1966, she became a Chancery barrister in Lincoln's Inn Fields and later specialized in international tax planning at Lloyds Bank, where she became a senior executive in the trust department. Over a period of 20 years, she wrote a series of acclaimed "legal whodunits" set primarily at Lincoln's Inn, featuring Prof. Hilary Tamar, beginning with Thus Was Adonis Murdered (1981). She collaborated with Lawrence Block, Tony Hillerman and others for the novel The Perfect Murder: Five Great Mystery Writers Create the Perfect Crime (1991), and contributed stories to numerous anthologies.

buena nada fuera de lo común. una profesora de historia del derecho, es la "madrina" de un grupo de abogados, uno de ellos Julia es acusada de un homicidio en venecia. Desde la distante Londres trata de resolver el caso, La trama avanza con cartas y llamadas. Lo mejor las ironias y las charlas de los abogados entre ellos, muy british

This book is essentially the platonic ideal of what I wish murder mysteries to be; in this I am continually disappointed.

Julia Larwood, accidental murder suspect, learned space case, over-educated hot mess express, is such a treasure; though I am not a hypersexual lady barrister, rarely have I felt as validated by a female character. I, too, am worried for Desdemona.

A brilliant ending to a brilliant series. I've been giving the books 4 stars out of some weird feeling that 5stars requires a "literaryness" but I felt that 5stars was deserved for a series that's been my most enjoyable reading in a long while. I'm just sad there's no more. The book is funny, has great dialogue and character writing, is tense, interesting references which aren't confusing if you don't know them, a well written gay relationship, has a bunch of twists but none which seem forced or completely unexpected - again i don't think you can work out the whole thing before the end but you can do a good job i think and there's some clever misdirection. The ending wraps this up nicely. A great, great book that I highly recommend if you enjoy mysteries, and the rest of the series too.… (mais)

another great book in the series. not exactly a "puzzle" mystery but the ending is highly satisfying and it all fit together nicely with some great misdirection. the characters and writing are regularly funny, the locations and descriptions constantly vary and are interesting, it builds suspense well - a highly entertaining and enjoyable book. a great series that I'd highly recommend to anyone who likes mystery fiction
