"'Atmospheric, hugely beguiling and as filled with tricks and sleights of hand as a magician's sleeve...this is English gothic at its eccentric best; a combination of Ealing comedy and grand opera: witty, charismatic, occasionally touching and with a genuine power to thrill'" * JOANNE HARRIS * "'An evocatively reverential tribute to the genre...the clash of temperaments between Bryant and May makes them great detectives'" * TIME OUT * "'The striking gothic setting of London under fire proves fruitful ground for a bizarre dark comedy of an investigation...bawdy, unpredictable and at times hilarious, with a cast of wonderful grotesques'" -- Maxim Jakubowski * GUARDIAN * "'A writer of extraordinary imagination'" -- Sunday Express "'Very cleverly plotted...simultaneously scary and alluring'" -- Daily Telegraph Books of the Year
