Emma Hagestadt, Independent

«Jones is fabulous at this, offering titbits of danger and discord while keeping a cool, matter of fact tone for the big horrors... This is, at heart, a moving love story»

Sunday Times

«Jones's first novel, The Outcast, winner if the Costa First Novel Award, was a very hard act to follow. Her second, however, is even better... Jones's research is impeccable, and her emotional intelligence outstanding»

Kate Saunders, The Times

«Ambitious...uncannily good at the evocation of charged moments»

Guardian

«Here Jones's talent really shows... In an excellent encounter with a military psychiatrist, the dialogue breaks like dry twigs»

Stephanie Cross, Times Literary Supplement
