Entertaining and chilling
This is a complex and well crafted tale, beautifully put together - full of a sense of foreboding, with expertly drawn, fully realised characters in a setting I know well - Dundee - but a city which here can become full of menace. There are many unexpected twists and turns in this tale but it is never less than entertaining - and always chilling in the best possible sense. You won't be disappointed
Chris Longmuir's excellent crime thriller is the page turner to beat all page turners. But please heed this warning. Do not start reading until you have checked all the locks and drawn the curtains. The strange noises outside and the moving shadows might just be the branches of the trees waving in the wind – but you can never be sure. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to all crime lovers.
