Editorial Reviews

 • "Just when you thought that Harvey couldn'’t get any better, up he pops with yet another brilliantly constructed, coolly written, chillingly sharp and utterly contemporary procedural." --Henry Sutton, Daily Mirror  • "John Harvey is not just a fine crime novelist but a fine writer, and an adornment to his chosen genre.
