One of Our Books of the Year 2017 | Maxim Jakubowski July 2017 Highly Recommended.

It's been too long since Harrison, very much a writer's writer whose sinuous and hypnotic, obsessive plots always leave their indelible mark on the reader, had published a new novel. You Belong to Me doesn't disappoint. As ever set in a New York city where the night holds a thousand secrets, this witnesses the life of a straight immigration lawyer with a passion for collecting rare maps intersect with an intense couple whose husband is particularly jealous and possessive and a man who returns out of the blue from the wife's past and takes all three into a dizzying waltz into darkness that will leave the reader giddy. Harrison has a particular talent for making places and things we know take on an area of shadow until they are no longer recognizable and this rollercoaster of a novel with its twists, turns, bare emotions and muted but craftily engineered thrills is par for the course and so eminently satisfying. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

Behind its glamourous facade, this city is a dark and troubling place where anything can be bought for a high enough price...As past and present collide, devastating secrets are unearthed, loyalties put to the test and Paul will be forced to consider what he is willing to sacrifice to possess what - and who - he most desires.

Reviews

'The class act of the urban thriller' Entertainment Weekly

'Colin Harrison is an exciting and intelligent writer ... He never allows the reader's attention to flag' Irish Independent

'The noir poet of New York crime fiction ... Harrison's storytelling hums and his prose shimmers' Publishers Weekly

'Tom Wolfe-worthy ... Harrison is a cinematic writer' New York Times Book Review

'Harrison is much more interested in the subtler shadings of goodness and weakness than he is in the gaudy displays of bang-pow-splat that typify so many other thrillers' Economist

'Harrison brings to a John Grisham-like story a stylistic panache and a depth of characterisation Grisham never attempts, without forfeiting his page-turning grip on the reader' Sunday Times

'Harrison's sense of atmosphere and character is so strong' Daily Telegraph
