In wartime superstition runs rife, but we've had to wait for Cathi Unsworth to draw out the strange links between spies, sorcerers and superstition in this, her latest and best novel. From the bones of almost unbelievable true-life events involving witchcraft and conspiracy in the mist-shrouded British countryside, Unsworth brings to life a Dennis Wheatley-esque cast of characters both real and imagined, and spins a superbly sinister mystery that had me hugging myself with delight. -- Christopher Fowler
A great crime novel with a supernatural twist that will keep you guessing until the end. -- Sarah Shaffi * Stylist *
Excellent ... a gripping and unpredictable occult mystery. There are shades of Dennis Wheatley, but with a distinctly modern sensibility. -- John Williams * Mail on Sunday *
Written with verve and ambition, it's a gripping tale that reminds you what thrillers can do. -- Francesca Brown * Emerald Street *
