"The obsessive world of pop culture becomes a dangerous, dark,
bewitching place in Noon's utterly brilliant crime fiction debut. "
* William Shaw *
"Constantly surprising, the novel takes the form of the police procedural and pushes it in a variety of unexpected directions" * Spectator *
"Noon's storytelling is assured and compelling ... it's a belter" * Guardian *
"Slow Motion Ghosts is a triumph ... an ingeniously-plotted and multi-layered tale" * Independent *
"The enjoyably convoluted plot encompasses a heartfelt and moving examination of the other-worldly appeal of glam rock for nerds and outsiders. If you weren't poleaxed by Bowie's death, this very absorbing novel will help to explain why others were." * The Telegraph *
