Review:

"Simple and devastating" (Daniel Hahn Independent)

" The Detour is a beautiful, oddly moving work of fiction, a quiet read that lingers long in the mind, like the ghosts that linger in our homes, and in the land around us" (John Burnside Guardian)

"This is a novel full of hints and mysteries… [It] will almost certainly keep you routed to your chair until the denouement." (Connie Bensley The Spectator)

"Quietly astonishing" (Jonathan Gibbs Times Literary Supplement)

"Intelligently thoughtful" (Eileen Battersby Irish Times)
