Reviews

  • A brilliantly written account of kidnap and conquest in the early years of the Iraq war.

    Justine Jordan, Guardian, Books of the Year
  • Clear, authentic and beautifully written, Spoils is a book about war for people who don’t like books about war. Van Reet gives us a thriller that is not a thriller, but a grave and fierce description of the moral battlefield behind the headlines from Iraq.

    Anne Enright
  • Blisteringly good.

    Daily Telegraph
  • Undeniably engrossing.

    Observer
  • Brian Van Reet’s assured debut novel begins with one of the best opening chapters I’ve read... bear[s] eye-widening witness to valour, horror, violence, cruelty and absurdity... not only rewarding but necessary.

    Guardian
