`A flawless meditation on creativity and the psychic toll it takes. Not only is it beautifully written, but there's a bloody good twister of a plot that rewards you well beyond the final page' -- Jessie Burton, author of The Miniaturist
`Stunning ... Wood has created one of the most moving and human characters in recent fiction' -- Emily St. John Mandel, author of Station Eleven
`A curious, bewitching and beguiling book that manages to be both profoundly moving and as gripping and unputdownable as a thriller. Outstanding' -- SJ Watson, author of Before I Go to Sleep
`An intelligent examination of creativity, psychology, and a riveting mystery ... this ambitious novel will haunt the imagination long after the final page' * Independent on Sunday *
`A resounding achievement ... Absorbing, rich, beautiful' * Guardian *
`Exhilarating. A masterfully paced and suspenseful read' * Independent *
`Wood has lost none of his ability to combine suspense with striking images. His fiction is playfully experimental, but never loses sight of its primary purpose: to entertain' * Daily Telegraph *
