  • "Hart writes, as it were, from the heart - he cares so intimately, knows so much and selects so impeccably"

    Sunday Times
  • "A "good story", with cops and robbers, terrorists, nincompoops, useful historical background, lurid modern foreground and a style that reanimates the past... Fascinating"

    Independent on Sunday
  • "Matthew Hart conveys the glamour, adventure, ruthlessness and even murderous nature of the trade with a novelist's grasp of narrative... Excellent"
