    Review quote
    "Her best book yet, an astonishingly complex and moving literary detective story that made me sob but also snort with laughter. It's the sort of novel you have to start rereading the minute you've finished it" Guardian "Sharp humour, together with a number of unexpected twists makes this a typically pacey and intelligent read" Daily Mail "A greedy feast of a story by a masterful author...A profound, exciting and lingering read" Daily Express "Triumphant...Her best book yet...A tragi-comedy for our times" Sunday Telegraph "To read it is to enter a hall of mirrors...Part complex family drama, part mystery, it winds up having more depth and vividness than ordinary thrillers and more thrills than ordinary fiction...A wonderfully tricky book" New York Times
