Reviews

  • With superb investigative skill and a delightfully light-hearted writing style, Spinney extends her analysis far beyond the relatively short duration of the plague... I’ve seldom had so much fun reading about people dying.

    The Times
  • Weaves together global history and medical science to great effect ... Riveting.

    Sunday Times
  • Both a saga of tragedies and a detective story... Pale Rider is not just an excavation but a reimagining of the past.

    Guardian
  • Vividly recreated, grimly fascinating… Coolly, crisply and with a consistently sharp eye for the telling anecdote, Spinney ... demonstrates how the Spanish flu cast a long shadow over the 20th century.

    Daily Mail
  • Magisterial.

    Observer
