'McKinty is one of the most striking and most memorable crime voices to emerge on the scene in years. His plots tempt you to read at top speed, but don't give in: this writing - sharply observant, intelligent and shot through with black humour - should be savoured.'
'Diabolical, unnerving, and gives a whole new meaning to the word "relentless". Adrian McKinty just leapt to the top of my list of must-read suspense novelists. He's the real deal.'
'A grade-A-first-rate-edge-of-your-seat thriller. I can't believe what went through my mind while reading it.'
'Brutally compelling. Like Harlan Coben in a bad mood.'
