"This book by an Australian writer prevails, in part because of its beguiling setting: Paris between the world wars...a winning story."
– Seattle Times
"Tessa Lunney nails it again with this thrilling breathless sequel, a tale of espionage, power and politics in 1922 Paris. In a work driven by fast moving plot, much direct conversation, and a goodly dose of derring-do, Lunney manages to immediately engage our interest and sympathy for her chain-smoking, plucky, if a tad tormented, heroine and her entourage. This is a book that is hard to put down."

"Lunney’s prose is beautifully atmospheric, capturing a collective sense of postwar trauma but also hope as Europe enters a new age. Phryne Fisher fans will fall in love with Kiki Button."

"In this eagerly awaited sequel to Lunney’s debut, April in Paris, 1921, Kiki is at her promiscuous and impish best as she faces danger, ambiguity, and conflicting clues. A mesmerizing, highly original tale that’s part spy thriller, part ode to a postwar Paris, part love story, and part mystery, Lunney’s latest features unique and captivating characters, rapid action, and a cliff-hanger ending."

“Lunney does a superb job melding history with suspense. She artfully recreates a fascinating era but does not hesitate to show the dark underside of the glamor. It provides a look at a frenzied period on the cusp of another war. Strongly recommended.”
