• Compelling…Engrossing…Gripping

    Sunday Times
  • Surprising and dark and excellent

    New York Times
  • A sinister story about guilt, atonement and restitution, fashioned from lean, prowling prose

  • A terrifically realised encounter between the clashing values of traditional Islam and the hedonistic, secular West... Beautifully written, painfully resolved.

    Lionel Shriver, The Times
  • More than a stylish thriller… The central plot has parallels with The Bonfire of the Vanities, while the socialites could be straight out of The Great Gatsby

  • A gripping read

  • A superbly compelling novel... As menacing and engrossing as the best McEwan

    Sunday Times
  • Osborne brings together all his authorial talents in this gripping and sophisticated thriller

  • Stylish, somehow both lavish and muscular at the same time

    Independent on Sunday
  • Utterly compelling; at the risk of trotting out a cliché, I couldn't put the book down
