'This book more than lives up to the previous three. It succeeds on several levels. It is a superb police procedural... it is a very cleverly manipulated whodunnit, with a trickle-down conclusion that contains one final twist; away from the police station, we have some memorable characters who are convincing if not always likable; and lastly we have one of the nastiest and most menacing villains that you are likely to encounter.' CRIME FICTION LOVER Hurley writes inch-perfect, matter-of-fact police procedurals, but he peoples them with an almost Dickensian cast that set the books way above most of his peers. -- Sharon Wheeler CRIMEREVIEW A pleasurably intricate plot leads to a satisfying grotesque resolution, further enhancing the reputation of one of Britain's best-ever police procedural writers. -- Mat Coward MORNING STAR There are some mighty subjects explored here within the context of a brilliant police procedural thriller... wrapped up in a typically tight and gripping plot. PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH This is an excellent police procedural mystery with an intricate plot... Hurley gets better and better with every new title. Superb. CRIMESQUAD
