Critic reviews

"As usual, Hill is unputdownable." ( Daily Express)
"Fans will not feel cheated... hugely enjoyable to read. God - and Allah - forbid he should think of killing off Pascoe." ( Evening Standard)
"Hill is always clever and funny... he demands intense concentration - because he's worth it." ( Literary Review)
"Hill is a masterful writer, quirky and intelligent, and his characters are drawn with a depth rare in crime fiction. And astonishingly, 21 books into the Dalziel and Pascoe saga, I have yet to feel he's repeating himself." ( The Times)
"His energy, wit and erudition are astonishing... he can still see off most of his rivals" ( Daily Telegraph)
"Hill at his best is a masterly storyteller, and he is at his best here... he always handles the big action scenes with authority and perfect timing... addictive...brilliant." ( Spectator)
"Hill keeps us in suspense throughout the entire book... it's a gripping read which displays Hill's brilliant characterization and dialogue and his skilful plot structure." ( Sunday Telegraph)
