Editorial Reviews


'Smith can make tension rise through the page like a shark's fin' -- Independent 'One of those writers that anyone who is serious about their craft views with respect bordering on awe' -- Val McDermid 'Cleverly and intelligently told, The Girl from Venice is a truly riveting tale of love, mystery and rampant danger. I loved it' -- Kate Furnivall, author of 'The Liberation' 'Smith not only constructs grittily realistic plots, he also has a gift for characterisation of which most thriller writers can only dream' -- Mail on Sunday 'The story drips with atmosphere and authenticity - a literary triumph' -- David Young, bestselling author of 'Stasi Child' 'Smith was among the first of a new generation of writers who made thrillers literary' -- Guardian 'Brilliant...enough enigmas within enigmas within enigmas to reel the mind' -- The New Yorker 'Brilliantly worked, marvellously written ... an imaginative triumph' -- Sunday Times --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.
