Reviews

`His masterpiece, a novel so strong that it seems a foregone conclusion that Thomson will enjoy the commercial success and widespread acclaim he deserves ... brilliant' * Matt Thorne, Independent on Sunday * `Beautiful writing, occasional poetry, and an aching sense of the vulnerability of those we love. It's an ambitious and brave book' * Carol Birch, Independent * `Exquisitely controlled ... What gives Death of a Murderer its greatest strength is its restraint. Nothing is exaggerated for effect ... Thomson is able to make glories of the tiniest moments' * Toby Litt, Guardian * `Thomson reaches the summit of his powers ... a novel of beautiful moral complexity' * Andrew O'Hagan *
