Review quote

One to savour -- Val McDermid The mystery is intriguing, the wit shafts through like sunlight . . . do not miss this book * Family Circle * Read her and you'll be astonished . . . very sexy, very hip and very funny * Scotsman * Enlivened by a very sardonic wit and turn of phrase, the narrative drive never falters * Birmingham Post * Her books are not just great whodunits but great novels in their own right -- Julie Burchill Hard to praise highly enough * The Sunday Times * Lots of excellent character sketches . . . and the dialogue is lively and convincing * Independent * Swift, tense and highly alarming * TLS * Wickedly acid, yet sympathetic * Publishers Weekly * A treat . . . haunting stuff * Woman's Realm * A witty, well-plotted, absolute joy of a book * Yorkshire Post * Everyone gets what they deserve in this high-class mystery * Sunday Telegraph * Tension builds, bitchery flares, resentment seethes . . . lots of atmosphere, colourful characters and fair clues * Mail on Sunday * A mystery of which Agatha Christie would have been proud. . . A beautifully written crime novel * The Times *
