Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A masterly and satisfying thriller from one of Britain’s best-loved mystery writers.” Ruth Rendell
“A gripping whodunnit and a subtle study of the mind of a psychopath.” Daily Mail
“This book must be judged as a potential successor to the great sequences of detective writing by PD James and Ruth Rendell...excellent.” Daily Telegraph
“A taut and suspenseful mystery…dark but entirely convincing…Hill’s fine writing and nuanced insight into human nature should appeal to fans of such masters of the psychological thriller as P.D. James, Elizabeth George and Ruth Rendell.” Publishers Weekly
