'A masterpiece of commercial crime writing, an entertaining global political thriller that sacrifice's none of Robotham's complex, detailed sense of place and character... as always, Robotham assimilates his plot strands so skilfully that the weight and texture of social interaction becomes almost palpable as they start to intertwine and sometimes violently collide. He cuts effortlessly between a sordid, almost Dickensian London and a violent Baghdad... He is simply brilliant at the complexities, convolutions and stunning surprises of plot.' [Weekend Australian]'This is a stellar effort by Robotham. His plotting is always strong, but this time in tying his crime plot to controversial international concerns he gives the story extra depth and interest... A very good thriller that represents another impressive step forward by the already outstanding Robotham. Highly recommended.' [Canberra Times]
