Review quote

'Brutal, violent and completely gripping' * Independent on Sunday * 'Reading this will make you feel that you walk on very, very thin ice, and know that chaos is very, very close. Such knowledge has many consequences, one of them is exhilaration.' * Niall Griffiths, Observer * 'Woodrell throws down sentences that will leave you amazed.' * Charles Frazier * 'Woodrell is a marvellous writer' * Roddy Doyle * A suspicion grows that you are reading the sort of book D.B.C Pierre's Vernon God Little might have been, had it been five times as keenly observed and deeply felt * The Times * It brings us all the satisfactions of crime thriller and mystery...The beauty lies in the loveable and wholly believable character of Ree * Guardian *
