Reviews

  • A moving, evocative and rewarding novel

    The Times
  • A brilliantly eerie little tale...with a very adroitly handled contemporary theme: the misery memoir

    Scotland on Sunday
  • The Beacon uses a small canvas, but it examines larger issues of truth, mental health and memory... Ideas about wasted lives, about grinding exhaustion at the expense of self-expression and about rank injustice are all here in a novel of great structural and stylistic control

    Guardian
  • Magnificent...It is all done so well, so wisely, that this short book is richly satisfying...it is a little masterpiece

    Daily Telegraph
  • Captivating... There is, from the start, a highly charged atmosphere of anxiety and ambiguity...the suspense and mystery work perfectly, and for this Hill's economy is exactly what is needed

    Financial Times
