"After both Roger and Neville Shandon are felled in Whistlefield's famous hedge maze by curare-tipped darts, Sir Clinton Driffield] arrives to restore order at this fractious country estate. Sir Clinton's performance as a criminal investigator is dazzlingly acute and the novel boasts several bravura scenes, all centering on the sinister hedge maze of death. Surely Murder in the Maze is one of the very finest country house mysteries produced by a British detective novelist in the 1920s. . . . No less a literary figure than T. S. Eliot praised Murder in the Maze in The Criterion for its plot construction . . . and its narrative liveliness . . . deeming it 'a really first-rate detective story.' . . . I]n his 1946 critical essay, 'The Grandest Game in the World, ' the great locked room detective author John Dickson Carr echoed Eliot's assessment of the novel's virtuoso setting, writing: 'These 1920s . . . thronged with sheer brains. What would be one of the best possible settings for violent death? J. J. Connington found the answer, with Murder in the Maze.'" (From the Introduction.)

"One of the very best of the Connington country house mysteries . . . is The Castleford Conundrum. In this tale the author does an extremely effective job of portraying an odious, stupid woman, Winifred Castleford, and her detestable, sponging in-laws. Even her seemingly sympathetic second husband, Philip Castleford, is offhandedly dismissed with contempt by Clinton Driffield as a cringing weakling. Only Philip's daughter (and Winifred's stepdaughter), Hillary, is portrayed by the author with real sympathy. If one desires to read a novel with a houseful of scheming, contemptible relations and a cleverly arranged murder of the one person with all the money-and what fan of classical English mystery does not-one could not do better than to choose The Castleford Conundrum." (From the Introduction.)
