Review:

Praise for ‘The Stranger House’:

Grim, gory, fascinating, enraging and entertaining.’ Independent

‘A mystery novel but far more than that. It's gripping… Hill is wonderful.' The Times

‘Exhilarating' Sunday Times

‘You're enthralled by the cunning of the plotting… great.' Observer

‘It's a complex, multi-layered plot… it takes a master like Mr Hill to turn it into such an absorbing and atmospheric mystery.' Sunday Telegraph

Praise for ‘Good Morning, Midnight’:

‘A real treat. The characters are deftly drawn, the plot constantly delivers surprises and the assured narrative demonstrates again what a terrific writer he is.' Observer

‘As absorbing and as enjoyable as anything Hill has produced. The writing is brilliant, witty and erudite.' Evening Standard

Review:

'Here is an author at his formidable best.' (The Mail on Sunday)

'One of Britain’s most consistently excellent crime novelists.' (The Times)

'He just keeps getting better and better ... Hill, a true master, never fails to shock and surprise.' (Ian Rankin)
