Reviews

Thrillers don't come any better than this. Razor-sharp entertainment, beautifully constructed and brilliantly written. It takes us to places in the mind where few writers have the talent or sheer nerve to venture. -- Clive Barker The best book I've read in a very long time. Subtle, horrific and splendid -- Roald Dahl A snapshot from hell * Rolling Stone *
