• "An armchair time bomb"

    Mail on Sunday
  • "This is a novel to mirror the disintegration of our times, the unstated irony of which is that a politics so provincial can breed a writer and an art so universal"

  • "A gripping read which you will find impossible to put down"

    Literary Review
  • "Very much the thinking person's thriller - utterly tense and riveting, but also posing an acute moral dilemma for an ordinary person caught up in the troubled politics of Northern Ireland"

    Daily Express
  • "It insists on being read at a sitting, for it is imperative to know what happens next"
