"A triumph" * Daily Telegraph *
"Sharp and witty, expertly paced, frequently horrific and often very funny" * Times Literary Supplement *
"An unusually classy thriller, true to life and not to be missed" * Independent *
"Entertaining black humour" * Independent on Sunday *
"Tim Parks presents the real, virginal, boastful, cracked Morris lurking behind his own justifications as matters turn lethal and ugly. Clever, blandly humorous and utterly immoral" * Sunday Times *
