Reviews

This is the type of rule-breaking that separates the good from the great. PROOF OF LIFE places Campbell firmly in the latter camp. Ambitious, entirely authentic, and razor-sharp in its observations, it is a superb addition to the Scottish crime canon. - www.bookgeeks.co.ukWith lashings of black humour and wry observation, [PROOF OF LIFE] deftly captures the essence of Glasgow itself, the ebb and flow of the city's energy, its epic patter and inimitable swagger. - Herald Summer ReadsFearlessly plotted . . . This slow-burn thriller exploits the classics of the genre - secrets, lies and misdirection - but does it so skilfully that the mechanics are camouflaged amid the emotional entanglements of lives lived . . . Campbell, an accomplished wordsmith, excels here. You can touch and smell her Glasgow November dreichness, but always her images are unexpected, her prose tight, and her narrative unflinching . . . The denouement is head-behind-cushion nightmarish, brilliantly done. - ScotsmanKaren Campbell deserves to be admitted to membership of what's becoming a very large club - Scottish crime writers of excellence. - The Times on SHADOWPLAYIt is the sensitive and occasionally comic depictcion of Anna - surely one of the most fully realised characters in modern crime fiction - that really makes this novel work. - Independent on Sunday...This is the type of rule-breaking that separates the good from the great.
