News and Reviews...
“Take a plucky sleuth, a handsome soldier, a shady stranger, add mystery and a dash of espionage, shake well, and you have Betrayal at Ravenswick. Fans of traditional mysteries will root for Fiona Figg as she navigates the treachery of London and a seemingly bucolic English country manor at a time when everything in England was changing.”
- Liz Milliron, author of The Homefront Mysteries
"I truly enjoyed reading Betrayal at Ravenswick. Fiona's self-deprecating humor and unspoken asides connected me to her from the start. The story is filled with memorable characters, and it is wonderfully suspenseful. I am awestruck by how seamlessly Oliver has woven in researched material. What great details--from medical treatments of the time to facial glue! I'm glad this is a series, and I can look forward to more."
— Lorraine Lopez, PEN Faulkner Award Winning Author of The Darling.
