Pequena biografia
Peter Dickinson was born and raised in Livingstone, Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia). He received his Bachelor of Arts degree at King's College, Cambridge in 1951. He not only served in the British Army, but also as assistant editor and reviewer for Punch Magazine for seventeen years.
He has written several novels for adults, a television series for juveniles and many books for young people. Keeping track of the audience for whom he is writing is not a problem. He knows the voice in which he is writing and does not have to constantly remind himself. Many of his protagonists are female. He says, "...women are more observant. I think that girls are much more aware of social matters than boys, and therefore make much more interesting observers."

Over the years, Peter Dickinson has won many awards for his novels. In 1982 he was placed on the International Board of Books for Young People Honor List for Tulku and The Iron Lion was selected one of New York Times Notable Books. In 1989 he won the Boston Globe‚Horn Book Award for Eva.

Colorful mystery with some interesting cultural components. Guessed the murderer but was still surprised by the conclusion

I first read this years ago.An entertaining murder mystery set in an alternate timeline where the eldest son of Edward VII and Alexandra survived to become king instead of his younger brother George V. The main difference in the timeline is the royal family. They're an interesting bunch. And the murder mystery is fun to try and solve.

But on rereading it, something King Victor II, Louise's father, does really shocked me. It was written in 1975 but still.
