Sensational ... A brilliant, high-octane crime novel, ringing with the hard-earned wisdom of a former cop.

A terrific thriller, it pulls off that near-impossible trick of being not just psychologically acute and beautifully written but rivetingly plotted too. Packed with convincing detail and a full cast of excellent characters it is edge of the seat stuff.
