As a crime novel it is a peak of the art.
I found my heart racing as the climax neared.
A fascinating psychological study of blood ties, guilt and revenge.
Suspenseful and tautly written – the psychological twists and turns will tantalize the reader as cunningly as a well-placed clue.
The Le Carré of crime . . . Her sense of place and atmosphere is superb, with rich descriptions of modern London’s seediness, the feel of its tatty, echoing streets and empty rooms, the smell of its greasy cafes and lonely libraries.
A superbly intelligent crime novel with a difference.
