Reviews

  • "One of the best novelists writing today"

    Sunday Times
  • "A firm grasp of social concerns ensure that her novels are reflective of our own times, as well as hugely absorbing"

    Louise Welsh, The Times
  • "The best mystery writer anywhere in the English-speaking world"

    Boston Globe
