Val McDermid's 25th novel is stunningly good, but it comes with a health warning. It is truly disturbing * The Times *
McDermid never pulls her punches in her graphic descriptions of the evils men (and women) inflict on each other...tension filled from start to finish * Irish Independent *
Her writing is taut, her plotting pacy... McDermid is particularly good at analysing human damage and its effects * Scotsman *
To write one brilliant book is hard. To write 25 is a miracle. That is what Val McDermid has achieved over the course of her career and it's why she is a much-loved legend in the literary world...the pace here is flawless and the various storylines are expertly interwoven...a superb crime novel * Sunday Express *
Brilliant ... sensational ...unforgettable * Guardian *
It's a tribute to McDermid's skill as a storyteller that she deliberately creates a trio of central characters who are essentially incapable of conventional empathy yet still manages to sustain reader sympathy right through to the coldly brutal finale * Irish Times *
McDermid has pulled out all the stops, delivering a fast-moving tale * Herald *
