Reviews

An absolute blinder of a book

Daily Sport

A superb novel. Intricate, truly gripping plot...elegant simplicity. Bravo! - as they say in Norway

Evening Standard

Reads incredibly nimbly ... This tale of revenge - with the US bombing of Afghanistan pounding in the grim background - has twists galore, and enough humanity in it to keep it grounded. A master at work
