Reviews

John Fowles's The Collector rewritten by Ruth Rendell * Independent I * There is, quite simply, no current thriller writer who enjoys better word-of-mouth than Mick Herron, whose sardonic series of Jackson Lamb espionage novels have accrued a devoted following. The unassuming Maggie Barnes is an improbable enlistee for MI5 - but she may be able to save the UK from a devastating plot * FT, Summer Reads * A beautifully written and ingeniously plotted standalone from Herron . . . this dark thriller is rife with the deadpan wit and trenchant observation that Herron's readers relish * Publishers Weekly * Part spy thriller, part creepy psychological thriller, the slick twists and elegant prose make this a super read * Sunday Mirror * Imagine John Fowles's The Collector rewritten by Ruth Rendell . . . you'd be nuts not to feast on this clever black comedy * Evening Standard * Herron delivers a chilling psychological thriller . . . An in-one-sitting read * Sunday Times Crime Club * Patrick Hamilton seems the main influence in this story of broken lives epitomising a society coming apart, both in his studies of London's losers and in his seminal depiction of gaslighting that foreshadows how Maggie is imprisoned and controlled * Sunday Times * A spine-crawlingly creepy portrait of cruelty and of loneliness . . . springing twist after brilliant twist as he practically dares his reader to try to put the book down . . . very impressive * Observer * An ingenious standalone psychological thriller from Mick Herron . . . a compelling and claustrophobic three-hander * Guardian *
