    Literary Review
  • "Powerful... A bracing and engaging read"

    Daily Telegraph
  • "Crime is by some distance Welsh's most restrained and thoughtful work"

    The Times
  • "You never know what you're going to get with Irvine Welsh, other than guaranteed intelligence. But what you get here is a triumph. A brave take on paedophile rings and the minds, fast and slow, behind them... There are echoes of rebus, of Christopher Brookmyre, even of Carl Hiaasen... There's only one Welsh and you should be reading him again"
