Murdering Americans — Daily Telegraph review 

Political correctness gone mad

Susanna Yager reviews crime fiction, 27 September 2007

Ruth Dudley Edwards's redoubtable Baroness 'Jack' Troutbeck is on the rampage again in the ambiguously titled Murdering Americans. Jack has been invited to become a visiting distinguished professor at an American university. She has scarcely arrived before she submits her hosts to a non-stop rant against American food, licensing laws and, above all, academia, which she discovers has been hijacked by the loony Left.

Undeterred by political correctness gone mad and the occasional murder, she embarks on a crusade to restore academic rigour to the campus. The story veers between farce, which is often hilarious, and the deadly serious. Judging by the rapturous quotes on the cover, Americans, at least those who reviewed the book, make up for any other shortcomings with a good sense of humour.
