[An] outstanding whodunit... Fans of impossible crime fiction won't want to miss this one. - Publishers Weekly, STARRED Review

A devilish sea saga that never runs out of cutthroat conspiracies. - Kirkus Reviews, STARRED Review

A genre sampling epic that sets outrageous traps for the reader and builds an atmosphere of dread up to an operatic final twist. - Financial Times

A successful novel that will be welcome in all fiction/mystery collections. - Library Journal, STARRED Review

And unlike most whodunits I wouldn't recommend it for pre-lights-out reading ? not just because of the spooky bits, but because such a lovingly complex construct needs readers who are fully awake. - The Sunday Telegraph

Artfully combines intriguing characters, fascinating historical details and a seafaring labyrinth of twists and turns-not to mention a demon named Old Tom...History and mystery lovers alike will delight in the heart-racing escapades of The Devil and the Dark Water. - BookPage, STARRED Review

Brilliant... intoxicating... There are some great villains and terrific heroes, especially the gentle (and gory) giant Hayes.The Devil and the Dark Water overflows with wonderful descriptions, neat similes, and enough horror, mystery, and crime to keep anyone enthralled. - The Independent

Compulsively readable...perfect for readers who like a little occult with their mystery. - The New York Times

If you read one book this year, make sure it's this one. - Daily Mail

The locked room murder meets a Michael Bay movie, by way of Treasure Island; you can't know what's going on, if only because the author won't let you know until he's delivered the final surprise - and another one after that. The effect is irresistible. - The Guardian
