Reviews

  • 'He has a novelist's eye for the beauty of the landscape and the shape of its contours. His descriptions...are elegiac in their intensity, and he has a sureness of touch which comes from a real understanding of the countryside...this is a novel of startling originality, an absorbing psychological thriller as well as a deft portrayal of friendship and betrayal. Nicoll writes fluently and well'
