Review Text

A truly impressive debut in the vein of Thomas Harris. A young, inexperienced inspector finds himself up against a serial killer after the brutal deaths of five young women in Greenwich, London. What's worse, he has to take on a disastrous case early in his career and the bloodletting has only just begun... Hayder effortlessly combines intelligent plotting with some sharply delineated characterization for her hero. If the resolution of the mystery lacks Harris's aplomb, all the signs are that Hayder is getting there and few will regret picking up this epic, which really grabs the reader by the throat. (Kirkus UK)
