Editorial Reviews


“[Armstrong] not only has a whiplash style, he also has a gift for understanding character, and his dialogue rings true.” —The New York Times

“Armstrong is among the most intriguing of writers . . . near to unputdownable.” —

“A thrilling, complex plot with characters that bring the city of Glasgow to life.” —
The Journal (Newcastle Upon Tyne)

“Excellent . . . A real page-turning plot, lush with rich Glasgow dialogue and dark humour, liberally peppered with ruthless violence. In short, a sure-fire bestseller.” —
Evening Express (Aberdeen)

“Armstrong creates electric tension.” —
The Daily Telegraph

“Armstrong has discovered a way with words that raises him above the routine level of the marketplace.” —
The Times (London)
