Review quote

A beautifully wrought murder mystery and investigation into what it means to be a murder detective. * Mail on Sunday * French's gripping sixth novel checks every box from prose to plotting to suspense to characterisation. I'm working my way through the Dublin Murder Squad series and they're stellar. * Big Issue * Perfect winter reading. Tana French's Dublin Murder Squad series are up there with the most read on our 50 book challenge discussions. This is no surprise since her books offer readers compelling, intelligent thrillers with brilliant characters - including the tough and foul-mouthed detective, Antoinette Conway, the narrator of this twisty and thrilling story. * Mumsnet Best books for Christmas * I'm a huge fan of hers and have read all her novels. -- Cecilia Ahern * The Lady * Best Crime Title of the Year * Daily Mail * First-rate . . . her procedural thoroughness takes her deeper and deeper into a wholly convincing portrayal of Dublin police. -- David Hare * Guardian *show more
