"Rocco is a likeable character... a law unto himself. The reader is kept hanging till the very last moment... the ending is excellent. If you enjoy all things French, this book will appeal." --The Book Bag
"There is a real sense of action and melodramatic page-turning suspense until almost the last sentence. Fast moving and great entertainment." --Eurocrime
"Brilliant - you just cannot put it down. The gloomy, sombre, atmospheric landscape of Picardie is brilliantly evoked... I eagerly await the next offering." --Monsters & Critics
"So much fun... Magson is an experienced writer... which shows in the sheer, slick enjoyability of the read. From the opening, I was happy to place myself in his hands and allow him to manipulate my imagination." --Historical Novels Review
