"'A gory but erotic thriller... This is a chilling and exhilarating read' Observer 'Beautifully written... a mesmerising blend of surrealism, satire and thriller... a fictional answer to the strangest art-house noir' Independent 'Antwerp is lit expressionistically, with a palette that combines the vulgar neons of the city's red light district with a silver nitrate glow. Cinema-going has clearly equipped Royle with a keen understanding of the mechanics of voyeurism, and he repays the debt by imitating the grammar of cinema' Independent on Sunday"
