Critic reviews

"A cracking conspiracy thriller worthy of le Carré." (Sunday Independent)
"I've not read such a multi-layered, expertly plotted portrayal of arrogance, greed, and hubris for a long time...scarily plausible." (Guardian)
"An intelligent, compelling, and well-written thriller... while BLOODLAND makes some serious points, it never forgets that a good thriller is there to entertain the reader as well as to make them think." (Irish Times)
