Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Last seen in Little Knell (2001), DI C.D. Sloan, "head of the tiny Criminal Investigation Department of `F' Division of the County of Calleshire Constabulary," looks into the murder of a woman found at the center of a Tudor-period maze. Catherine Aird's breezy Amendment of Life provides an intricate puzzle worthy of the always entertaining Inspector Sloan.
Library Journal
Like Kathryn Swinbrooke (see C.L. Grace's A Maze of Murders, reviewed above), Detective Inspector C.D. Sloan investigates a body found at the center of a Tudor-era maze. Series fans, especially, will appreciate this excellent procedural addition. Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The latest in the long line of stories featuring Detective Inspector C.D. Sloan and his rarely helpful underling Detective Constable Crosby, of Calleshire’s County CID (Little Knell, 2001, etc.) is kicked off when Milly Smithers, caregiver to aged Daphne Pedlinge of Aumerle Court, calls to report a body her mistress has seen in the middle of the Aumerle maze, a feature of the estate now open to the paying public and constantly, with the help of a strategic pair of binoculars, under the watchful eye of Miss Pedlinge. The body is identified as Margaret Collins, wife of David Collins, a lighting engineer and partner in Double Felix, Ltd., which had contracted to install a sound and light show in the maze. And there’s more trouble on David Collins’s domestic front, since his only child, preschooler James, is in the hospital, having lost an eye to a reportedly inherited disease. Court overseer Jeremy Prosser is a neighbor of the Collinses and of Daphne’s great-nephew and heir, Bevis Pedlinge, and his wife Amanda. Once these puppets are set up, Sloan digs in to knock down the seemingly perfect alibi of one of them, providing a none-too-convincing lesson in modern technology and a long-sought denouement. Clumsy plotting and fussy writing make this one of prolific veteran Aird’s lesser efforts.
