  • A wonderfully edgy piece of wartime noir

    D.J. Taylor, Independent
  • A work of art...Edric is one of the most remarkable novelists writing today

    Allan Massie, The Scotsman
  • Macabre twists keep the pages turning

    James Urquhart, Financial Times
  • Stunning and ambitious...Edric enters fully the mind and inner life of his dissolute (anti-)hero. It would be so easy to fall into pastiche, but a writer as good as he is, is pitch perfect. The reader is encouraged to savour the prose, to absorb the atmosphere and to enter the eerie world of Haworth and its inhabitants.

    Edric's portrait of the Reverend Patrick Bronte is masterly and poignant. Branwell's close relationship with Emily, the love he feels for consumptive Anne and the disintegration of his bond with Charlotte who looks on him with resentment and hostility are vividly explored...A moving and imaginatively reconstructed portrait

    Paula Byrne, The Times
  • A masterly, highly evocative, multi-layered tale

    Mail on Sunday (Eire)
