A most assured debut, cleverly plotted with an unguessable ending
Compelling...marks the blooding of a major new talent, with shades of Scott Turow
Landay writes with eloquent intensity...about the no-win ethical choices that can corrupt or otherwise crush a good cop
An impressive and constantly surprising debut...the main plot twist knocks you sideways and there's more to come. A marvellous, unexpected novel
What a read! I was really drawn into the storyline and expected a very different conclusion to the one I got! Fabulous! So many twists and turns and lies it makes you dizzy trying to keep up.
