Praise for Down Cemetery Road

"[Herron's] first novel, Down Cemetery Road, begins with the funniest dinner party scene I have ever read, and then, after a nearby explosion, shifts into thriller territory."
—Los Angeles Review of Books

“Good characterization, dialogue and well-paced narrative make this confident first novel frighteningly plausible.”
—The Daily Telegraph

“[Down Cemetery Road] shifts from domesticity with violence and private detectives—initially seeming something like Kate Atkinson's detective novels in both the quality of the writing and the lightness of tone—to something like Christopher Brookmyre at his best . . . Herron is a major writer of considerable wit and talent.” 
—International Noir Fiction

Praise for Mick Herron

"Mick Herron never tells a suspense story in the expected way."
—The New York Times Book Review
