'Dark, twisted, addictive. Loads of satisfying twists and turns. I couldn't put it down.'

Robert Bryndza, author of The Girl In The Ice

'At a stroke, Mark Hill has joined the upper echelons of London crime writers.' 

Barry Forshaw, Crime Time

'Surely the hardest debut of 2017 to beat. What a story and what a superb writer!'

Alex Gray, author of Keep The Midnight Out

'A delight of a book that wreaks havoc with your assumptions in a delicious Highsmithian manner. Hill has a hell of a career ahead of him.'

Alex Marwood, author of The Darkest Secret

'Enter DI Ray Drake, the flawed, sharply-drawn lead of this promising new series. The author has an unerring ability to give incidents a biting sense of reality.'
