Nick Circovik online review   “Using a mysterious unsolved murder on the Paris Metro in pre-Second World War Paris as its springboard, I found Jan Edwards‘ A Small Thing for Yolanda to be a pacey  page turner, distilling a heady, darkly romantic perfume of spydom, sex and supernatural savagery during its relatively short length. What’s not to like!?”
