Dangerous Deceits is an entertaining and easy read for fans of amateur sleuths and a murder or two committed in a small community, with a number of suspects who have reasons to kill. Gawaine St Clair, with a little help from is friend, David Powers, undertakes a difficult task to find a murderer in a village of Ellingwood, which "is a hotbed of illicit passions". The plethora of suspects is a warranty that Gewaine will get a headache or two, albeit, being a getleman, will never admit it. Nice twists and turns kept my interest till the end.

I love this book. I love Gawaine and Christabel and their ripostes. I love Persephone and her no nonsense, take no sh*t attitude.
I liked the mystery at the heart of the novel, the murder of Father Thomas. I thought it was well written, well described and well thought out.
This book is great for those who enjoy British mystery at it's finest. I loved it and will definitely be picking up more Cherith Baldry books in the future.
