• "<i>Throw Me to the Wolves </i>is, on the face of it, a made-for-TV procedural police drama… Scratch the surface, however, and all of Britain’s restless undercurrents are churning away… <b>this is literary fiction as it should be: in stylish, surprising, lyrical sentences we </b><b>are forced to confront the hidden power structures, public and private, that control our everyday lives</b>. It’s reminiscent of Edward St Aubyn, not only in its pillorying of the elite, but the pleasure McGuinness takes in having his characters say clever things. It’s also <b>a proper page-turner.</b>"

    The Times
  • "The novel is intelligent and troubling… [<i>Throw Me To The Wolves</i>] invites reflection about the state of morality today, about the lust for witch-hunts and the zeal to punish… a well-written and enjoyable crime novel."
