Reviews

  • "This highly original, ballsy thriller is like nothing you have read – or Denise Mina has written – before"

    Mark Sanderson, The Times, *Books of the Year*
  • "Not a single word is wasted in this beautifully written novel. Unsettling, evocative and staggeringly good, it is possibly Mina’s finest achievement"

    Daily Express
  • "A wonderfully atmospheric, unsettling read."

    Louise Rhind-Tutt, i
  • "It is clear from the very start of Denise Mina’s Conviction quite how much fun she – and her readers – are about to have… Mina is such a classy writer and Anna is a darkly brilliant creation"

    Observer
  • "Deeply unsettling and thought provoking in all the best ways"

    Doug Johnstone, Big Issue
  • "The Long Drop is an exceptional book. The pages reek of fifties Glasgow, forming an oppressive backdrop to a true crime story that fascinates and appals from start to finish. Mina’s prose cuts to the bone, laying bare the prideful wickedness of men in a tale that is as often touching as it is frightening. A feast of a crime novel."

    Stuart Neville
  • "A mischievous sense of fun exists alongside a capacity to generate genuine edge-of-your-seat thrills and some thought-provoking moments. You won’t have more fun with a book this year"

    Sunday Express
  • "The Long Drop is a fascinating, quietly insidious work, unsettling but absorbing"

    Marcel Berlins, The Times
  • "It is a beautifully written book, a masterpiece by the woman who may be Britain’s finest living crime novelist"

    Daily Telegraph
  • "The Long Drop is not just a success and a thrilling read in its own right, but a game-changer for the genre."

    Stuart Kelly, Scotland on Sunday
