Reviews

Thoughtful, beautifully observed and utterly compelling * Independent on Sunday *
A fascinating novel - very moving and beautifully nuanced and observed - it beguiles with a tremendous slow-burning power -- William Boyd
Brilliant...an involving meditation on passion, history and architecture * Daily Mail *
A love letter to Liverpool...ambitiously conceived... He has perfect pitch when it comes to the prose of each period, so much so that when I started the novel, I had the uncanny sense that what I was reading must have been salvaged from the 1940s. Its every line convinces -- Kate Kellaway * Observer *
The story has the resonant simplicity of a poem... The Rescue Man turns the ongoing frenzy of construction and destruction into a quietly powerful metaphor of how we grow up * Guardian *
