Review quote

"These books succeed in harnessing all the genre's addictive power while maintaining a complexity and fascination entirely their own. The Risk of Darkness" "reminds us that risk-taking, in fiction, as in life, sometimes pays off brilliantly."

" -Spectator" "For the first time in years P.D. James has serious competition" "-Literary Review" Praise for Susan Hill: "I loved this book. Masterly and satisfying. The result is stunning." -Ruth Rendell "This book must be judged as a potential successor to the great sequence of detective writing by P.D. James and Ruth Rendell...excellent." -"Daily Telegraph "(UK) "Gripping...and subtle." -"Daily Mail "(UK) "From the Hardcover edition."show more
