We are delighted to see not just one, but TWO reviews of Dorothy Bowers’ work by golden age crime fiction historian Curtis Evans on his blog The Passing Tramp, for Fear for Miss Betony, and The Bells at Old Bailey. Both offer the interesting, entertaining and educational read that is stock and trade at The Passing Tramp. In discussing Fear, Evans draws parallels between heroine Miss Betony and author Dorothy Bowers’ curtailed and constrained life, and highlights the feminine milieu that dominates both novels.
