Editorial Reviews


"A few pages in, and the combination of a dysfunctional family, flawed but strong-willed and courageous main character, a cruel and gruesome backstory set in the harshness of the Icelandic climate, had me hooked." - Jeannie MacLean (Crime Watch)

"Telling this story totally from Ylfa's viewpoint, creates a strong sense of urgency, and a rising feeling of fear as events start to escalate around her. It's a very realistic feeling - it's doubtful many people placed in the same position as her would cope, know what to do, not question, panic, thrash about a bit so everything about Ylfa's internal voice feels very realistic. There is hefty amounts of tension and fear, and a resolution that makes you wonder whether surviving sometimes isn't all it's cracked up to be." - Karen Chisholm (Australian Crime Fiction)

 "I don't want to spoil the ending - but it's very poignant. Indeed, 'Whatever you do in this life, be it good or not so good, it will chase you down through the long lonely years of your life,' Ylfa forewarns. 'And it will catch you up.'" - Morana Blue (Author)

About the Author

Grant left New Zealand over twentyyears ago to settle in Australia but after many years spent maintainingelectric guitars for a variety of indie rock bands in Sydney he found himselfmoving again, this time to Northern Ireland, where he first started toying withthe idea of writing crime fiction. After ten years in Belfast he switchedvenues to Iceland where his first four books are set. 'On A Small Island'(Fahrenheit Press), 'The Mistake' (Number Thirteen Press), 'A Place To BuryStrangers' (Fahrenheit Press) and the as yet unpublished 'Out On The Ice' arethe result of a lot of time spent indoors watching the weather pass him by likeone North Atlantic storm front after another. Just in case Reykjavík wasn'tquite cold enough for him he has now moved to Finland to experience what aproper winter feels like and has started a new series of books based around thesouthern city of Porvoo.
