"England's answer to Michael Crichton" Financial Times "I loved Gridiron. It is truly original disaster novel with a theme that is awesome" -- Ruth Rendell "Brilliant thriller about a computerised building that turns into a killing machine" Independent "Kerr paces the action, teases and controls... The novel is all the more powerful for being close enough to contemporary truth for this skillful writer to engender a real sense of horror... Severely frightening" -- Frances Fyfield Daily Telegraph "Ingeniously gruesome... I found myself turning the pages in feverish anticipation" The Times
