Review quote

"Hull's answer to Ian Rankin."Hull Daily Mail "The other big star of the book is oft-maligned Hull, whose dour image gets an airbrushing." The Sun "These are not 'big' crimes that he highlights, but ones that are more of a local variety; crimes that people like George Pelecanos examine." Crimesquad.com "Quantrill is the Hammett of Humberside." Nudge.com
