What the Critics Say

Praise for Howard Linskey: "One of the best new writers around. This is a must-read series." (Mark Billingham)
"Linskey has taken a sharp swerve towards the big time.... He has elevated his writing to a level of complexity and humanity seldom approached by British writers previously. A new name on our criminal horizon." (Maxim Jakubowski)
"This is lacerating fare that makes most current crime fiction look like thin gruel." (Financial Times)
"Brilliant.... This is first class stuff, an unstoppable tale, a real page-turner not to be missed." (Sarah Broadhurst)
"Linskey delivers a flawless feel for time and place, mixed with unrelenting pace." [The Times (Top Five Thrillers of the Year)]

Kept Me Awake Listening

I Enjoyed The Book. Three story lines moved well between main characters with interesting events unfolding all the while. <br/><br/>it's the first book I've bought by this author, I'm buying a second immediately because he's a great writer. <br/><br/>The publisher's notes tell you all you need for a synopsis, so I don't need to tell more. <br/><br/>The story lines are topical and will not date over time, that makes the book's enjoyment durable for a few decades. <br/><br/>Buy the book, you won't be disappointed with content or narrator, who is brilliant and added polish to the whole audio experience.
