Reviews

  • A book so brilliant that it compels you to stay up all night galloping through to the end

    Daily Mail
  • Immensely readable. The plot twist is both sinister and affecting, and so skillfully done that you remember why authors had plot twists in the first place

    Guardian
  • Immaculately calculated. Trevor's cunning is to lull us with inertia so that we are as startled as his characters when the faint air of menace turns into a tempest

    Sunday Tribune
  • Trevor is a master of both language and storytelling. this sinister, elegant, piercingly sad novel is surely one of the books of the year

    Hilary Mantel, Sunday Express
  • A masterpiece. You read and are dazzled. It has one of the most memorable and convincing, most sinister and terrifying of characters created in the modern novel

    Susan Hill
  • Masterly in its tension

    Irish Times
