"Issues of race and class spark a wily, layered, and savvy narrative where nods to Great Expectations coexist nicely with Scudamore's morbid humor and blistening social commentary."---Publishers Weekly

"A kinetic novel, spiced with stunning imagery."---Financial Times

"Exemplary: you feel the hand of a natural at work."---The Guardian

"Dicknesian... Read it for the power of the writing, the descriptions that fizz off the page, and the lust for life."---The Independent

"[Scudamore] has the extraordinary power of summoning an entire brooding, smoggy city to life... Most of all he has the ability to take on the heaviest of themes with the lightest and most compelling of touches, and leave you with an appetite for more."---The Telegraph

"Deftly plotted, this is a fast-paced novel with ingenious and constant twists. The language is brilliantly sharp and observation unsentimental but compassionate... A magically compelling read."---Daily Mail

"Scudamore's world pulsates with life...The juxtaposition of the sordid, mundane existence of those on the street with the bizarre, almost mythic lives of the super-rich makes for vivid reading."---The Spectator
