A shrewd delight * *
A profound novel about human frailty ... In its tone and minor-key approach, Peace Talks is reminiscent of the Julian Barnes of Levels of Life, plus lashings of (duly credited) James Salter ... Peace Talks turns out to be a moving and direct study of frailty , love and time, and luck and grief , of what is left when all the noise - of machination, violence and competing stories - is stripped away * Guardian *
A tender and elegant portrait of a grieving individual searching for personal and political peace * Sunday Times *
A feat of telling ... Masterfully rendered * Spectator *
As well as shining a light on the conflict resolution industry, Finch plays a canny game with our assumptions about the motives behind Anna's murder, in a smart tale slyly engineered to warn against the perils of nationalist tub-thumping * Daily Mail *
Tim Finch's elegant and wintry novel has something of the feel of early Kazuo Ishiguro, and a similar acute grasp of both character and situation ... In Behrends, Finch has created a narrator both open and opaque * Observer *
