John Fairfax Press Reviews

Assured storytelling and highly intriguing moral complexity. I tore through it - Chris Brookmyre, praise for Blind Defence

The courtroom scenes are brilliant, and Benson really comes alive under pressure. Stubborn, fitful and contradictory, he's a highly individualised creation - Spectator, praise for Blind Defence

Punchy dialogue and devious plotlines . . . compelling - The Times, praise for Blind Defence
