«Compulsively readable ... a carefully devised plot unfolded with the most cunning art. Wilkie Collins and Dickens would have admired it»

Sunday Times

«Brilliantly plotted. Vine is not afraid to walk down the mean streets of the mind and can build up an almost tangible atmosphere of menace and unease»

Daily Telegraph

«Will linger in your memory long after you have closed the book. A first-rate novel»

Washington Post

«[Vine has a] dizzying ability to lock on to minds in chaos and snare us in their whorls of dread and doubt»

Telegraph
