Reviews

Frequently mesmerising . . . This is a significant literary performance -- Dwight Garner * * New York Times * *
Rawly unsentimental but illuminated throughout by a subtle compassion, Godsend is a novel of enormous emotional intelligence which makes for compelling and consistently unpredictable reading -- Robin Yassin-Kassab * * Guardian * *
The 9/11 novel that finally understands the fulfilments of faith . . . It is not only Wray's heroine but also his novel that comes of age, steadily deepening and astounding as it develops . . . Godsend impresses because Wray is so fearlessly committed to his fictional world, and to his own depiction of it -- James Wood * * New Yorker * *
Illuminating . . . Extraordinary * * Financial Times * *
Wray's storytelling is so taut, his psychology so audacious -- JONATHAN FRANZEN * * Guardian * *
A nervy drama of secrecy and desire . . . Fascinating * * Observer * *
Illuminating . . . At a time when so many novelists are turning towards inner landscapes, Wray has undertaken a journey to the edge of the unimaginable -- Michael LaPointe * * Times Literary Supplement * *
Brilliantly executed . . . Wray's novel is on one hand an entirely familiar story of youthful rebellion and on the other an unimaginable depiction of a cold-blooded killer groomed by the world's most notorious army * * Wall Street Journal * *
Laden with tension and suspense . . . A compelling adventure story * * Irish Times * *
Wray writes with an elegant economy . . . Wray's understanding of the beauties and cruelties of religious faith is deeply impressive . . . This is a very fine novel indeed . . . Anybody who seeks to understand the world as it is today will find enlightenment here -- Allan Massie * * Scotsman * *
