"His [Billingham's] storylines of murders that go unseen or unrecognised are chilling and moving, and Tom Thorne is on terrific form." - The Times
"Groundbreaking ... a gripping, unsensational take on a type of crime that is happening more frequently than many of us realise." - Sunday Times
"[A] sensitive topic delicately handled, with a perfectly executed and thoroughly unnerving twist at the end." - The Guardian
"Irascible, irritating and indefatigable...Billingham's passionate depiction of the injustice and brutality that flow from these killings spills from every page, making this one of his most powerful crime novels, written with a fury that does both him and Thorne justice." - Daily Mail"The author's rage, combined with his skill as a crime writer, makes this a gripping and genuinely tragic story." - Literary Review
