"A captivating story that won't let you go until you've discovered all there is to know about characters you came quickly to care about. And by then it'll be too late. Very, very good indeed" Neil Williamson
"A heady dose of violence and off the wall sex … an entertaining and insightful study of dark psychology" Peter Tennant
"Psychological, relationship horror, super clean and nicely complex … it really is an all-nighter" Rick Kleffel
"One of the best crime novels I have ever read … bleak, intense, moving, heartbreaking stuff. The prose is lean and terse without losing any depth; the characters are vivid, each one on the verge of breaking. These people are so real they could live around the corner – but you'll be glad that they don't. This is a very fine novel indeed from one of the brightest literary talents the UK has seen in a long time" Gary McMahon
