Praise for Down Cemetery Road
"Good characterization, dialogue and well-paced narrative
make this confident first novel frighteningly plausible."
--The Daily Telegraph "[Down Cemetery Road] shifts from domesticity with violence and private detectives--initially seeming something like Kate Atkinson's detective novels in both the quality of the writing and the lightness of tone--to something like Christopher Brookmyre at his best . . . Herron is a major writer of considerable wit and talent."
--International Noir Fiction Praise for Mick Herron "Mick Herron never tells a suspense story in the expected way."
--The New York Times Book Review "Stylish and engaging."
--The Washington Post "A superb thriller . . . Herron may be the most literate, and slyest, thriller writer in English today."
