Review quote

"A terrifyingly addictive series - I'm hooked! Detective Inspector Hazel Micallef investigates the creepiest of crimes" MO HAYDER "Micallef, a nice twist on the traditional middle-aged alcoholic male cop, is wearily, startlingly real" Guardian "Detective Inspector Hazel Micallef, a character one can't get enough of. It's hard, maybe impossible, to think of her equal in crime fiction... keeps the reader's heart pounding from first page to last in a distinctive and superior crime novel" Toronto Star "Hazel Micallef is a splendid recruit to the ranks of fictional detectives" Literary Reviewshow more
