«A twisted whodunit…hilarious»

Financial Times

«Parks writes with a brutal, snapping wit»

Sunday Times

«Tarantino meets Peter Mayle»

Independent on Sunday

«A sort of twisted whodunnit… The readability of the book comes from Parks’s wonderful and audacious juggling of farcical situations and the way in which Morris’s earnest attempts to build a more cultured and just world lead him further and further into slaughter. Hilarious.»

Financial Times

«A triumph of the darkly-comic-thriller-and-something-more-besides genre»
