• "This complex thriller is so hardboiled it makes Ellroy and Connelly read like Simon and Garfunkel… it’s good. Very good"

    Time Out
  • "Combines the spare tautness of the best private eye novels with lyrical descriptions of an almost vanished West"

    The Times
  • "This is an extraordinary double-barrelled blast from a lost era. It’s a two-fisted epic of Texan treachery, packed to the gunwales with sex, drugs, booze and guns…"

  • "Lyrical, liberal, exciting and humane. Sexy, too, with a generosity that transcends taste and as violent as needs be"
