'Charged with sex, technology and veiled threats pungently fulfilled...Harrison brings an analogue sensibility to this digital world.' The Times
'Charged with sex, technology and veiled threats pungently fulfilled...Harrison brings an analogue sensibility to this digital world.' The Times 'Written from the gut...Definitely recommended, this superbly executed novel has the appeal of the darkest thriller and the clockwork mechanism of the finest whodunit' Time Out 'A vastly entertaining thriller' Elle 'A darkly scintillating psychological drama. MANHATTAN NOCTURNE has been compared to Tom Wolfe's BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES for the panoramic sweep of its portrayal of Manhattan life, and it certainly has everything Wolfe's novel has, and more...Make this a must.' Cosmopolitan
