'Brutally compelling serial killer thriller... told at blistering pace.'
'Duncan/Black's superior scene-painting and psychological probing translate the mundane into the memorable. Similarly, the cliché of a serial-killing spree with a hidden logic is redeemed by the freshness of his characterisation of the seedy duo responsible.'
'Explosively exciting... The sheer brilliance of the prose and the pace of the action sweeps you up into a utterly believable world.'
'The book is chilling and compulsive. It is exceptionally well written, with an excellent plot.'
'I loved this book. I loved the way I was taken through the story with no holds barred...The pace left me breathless, the characters are convincing and the story is a real adrenalin rush.'
I found parts of the novel unbearable to read, but its pull is undeniable.
'Like rubbernecking at an accident, you can't tear your eyes away from this shockingly violent but compelling thriller.'
'Intelligent and moving as well as knuckle-whiteningly terrifying.'
This is a firecracker of a tale that whips along so fast , it's tempting to skip lines in eagerness to see where the plots heading. What stops you is the turn of phrase, which is so bright it can take your breath away.
