Dark, sharp and compelling
A tightly-written debut . . . Packed with procedural detail, believable characters and rich dialogue it will keep you turning those pages long after bedtime. Avison Fluke is a fine creation . . . The prose is faultless . . . Mike Craven is one to watch out for
A book that shines with tension, wit and invention
Praise for M. W. Craven:
Washington Poe is a name destined to be spoken by crime fiction enthusiasts everywhere: Britain's answer to Harry Bosch. The Puppet Show is a wickedly, twisting and turning, mystery that will have readers breathlessly turning the pages until the final shocking conclusion
Satisfyingly twisty and clever and the flashes of humour work well to offer the reader respite from the thrill of the read
Dark, thrilling and unputdownable with sharply drawn characters that stride off the page
Mike Craven is a forceful new voice in British crime fiction
A powerful thriller from an explosive new talent. Tightly plotted, and not for the faint-hearted!
A brilliant start to what promises to be a fantastic series; get it now or kick yourself for missing out
A thrilling curtain-raiser for what looks set to be a great new series
I cannot recall the last time I binge read a novel in 36 hours . . . truly mind-blowing
I loved this book!
