Industry Reviews

'As always in a Deaver novel the plot twistst one way and then the next but the tension is superbly maintained' [The Times]'The twists and turns from devilish Deaver will have you burning the midnight oil, then using it to set fire to the candle you'll be burning at both ends until you finish this. The seamless narrative delights and the reader is drip-fed information that will invite imaginative minds to head into overdrive . . . This is the perfect accompaniment on a winter's night, curled up on the sofa with a glass of your favourite tipple.' [Sun]'He's mesmerising in whatever guise' [Independent on Sunday Books of the Year]'There is no one better at wrong-footing the reader.' [Evening Standard]'Fans of Deaver's fiendishly clever suspensers won't be surprised by the nonstop deceptions, reversals, shocks and surprises, but this time they're even more varied than usual, and, given the characters' backgrounds, a lot more plausible. The result is his most successful thriller in years.' [Kirkus, starred review]
