Editorial Reviews

Review

“A stunning novel.” —The Daily Telegraph
 
“Superb . . . Johnston is a wizard with landscape—and the scenery here is alive with steaming trains, a grating seacoast, sweeping sunlight and shadow, distant and foreshortened views of victims, pursuers, and the carefully uninvolved. . . . Moving and artful.” —Kirkus Reviews
--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
