Editorial Reviews

Review

“The power of Mina’s writing is such that she can transport readers from placidity to violent pandemonium in the space of a paragraph.” (The Washington Post)

“She’s up there with Ian Rankin among practitioners of character-driven Scottish noir.” (The Philadelphia Inquirer)

“Riveting. . . . An installment that exposes the bleakness of small-town Scotland as skillfully as it does the bustling mean streets of Glasgow.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“A wee fine read.” (Winnipeg Free Press)

“A page turner that is guaranteed to satisfy mystery lovers.” (The Vancouver Sun)

“There’s a wonderful Glasgow-ness to Mina’s writing. Using various points of view, she captures a city full of hopelessness and hope, a place of deep class divides and gang crime, of loyalty and pride in belonging.” (NOW Magazine)

“Deliciously shadowy.” (Metro London)

“Atmospheric and compelling.” (Woman & Home (UK))

“Takes you right under the characters’ skin. A relentlessly tense and exciting read, every page oozes menace and its core of truth makes it all the more unsettling.” (Sunday Mirror)

“A terrific exploration of crime and oppression.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review)) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
