Reviews

"A bizarre dark comedy of an investigation... bawdy, unpredictable and at times hilarious, with a cast of wonderful grotesques" * Guardian * "As filled with tricks and sleights of hand as a magician's sleeve... witty, charismatic, occasionally touching and with a genuine power to thrill" -- Joanne Harris "Fowler shocks and frightens while making us laugh out loud. An original, erudite and exciting whodunnit" * Good Book Guide * "An evocatively reverential tribute to the genre...the clash of temperaments between Bryant and May makes them great detectives" * Time Out * "The writing is as ever fluid and pacey, the characterisation deft and the plot fresh and ingenious" * Independent on Sunday *
