"Really great suspense novel. Kept me up most of the night. The alcoholic narrator is dead perfect." * STEPHEN KING * "The thriller scene will have to up its game if it's to match Hawkins this year" * Observer * "A complex and increasingly chilling tale courtesy of a number of first-person narratives that will wrong-foot even the most experienced of crime fiction readers" * Irish Times * "achieves a sinister poetry . . .
