About the Author

"The Dinosaur Feather is the weirdest and most ingenious new mystery I've read in years . . . It will be obvious to readers why Gazan's novel would be the leader of almost any pack. Moody and intricate, The Dinosaur Feather is every bit as unforgettable as its creepy title."--Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post
"Formidable and satisfying . . . in the author's menacing world, sins of emotional cowardice and betrayal can be just as awful as offenses against the criminal code."--Tom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal (selected as a top-ten mystery of the year)
"Gazan has mastered the arts of suspense and revelation."--Kristeligt Dagblad
"Gazan's brainy thriller . . . orchestrates the suspenseful action and overlapping lives of her complex characters with deceptive ease . . . [A] moving exploration of such broader themes as parenthood, love, and the potentially poisonous results of living with lies."--Publishers Weekly
(Starred Review)
"Gazan's novel has by far outdone--not to say outshone--all other crime novels published this year."--Anette Dina Sorensen, Politiken
"Imaginative . . . a book with an independent, capable female lead, and one in which scientific research is central."--Maxine Clark, Eurocrime
"Intelligently plotted and psychologically believable. "--Marcel Berlins, The Times
"My best mystery of the year turns out to be yet another stunner from Scandinavia. I could be wrong (but I don't think I am) when I say that Gazan disposes of a murder victim here by an infernal means that no other mystery writer--not even the resourceful Dame Agatha--ever concocted."--Maureen Corrigan, NPR
"Simply first-class."--Jyllands-Posten
"Skulls, feathers, claws, and winged flight--all are part of an ongoing scientific controversy about the evolution of birds that winds through the pages of Danish author S.J. Gazan's absorbing debut thriller."--Barbra Clark, BookPage
"The asides--the dissemination of DNA, the structure of dinosaur skulls--prove as intriguing as the central mystery. A top-flight thriller that's poisonous, smart, and outrageously entertaining."--Christopher Fowler, Financial Times
