Review:

"Sharp, funny and satirical... This is one to relish" Guardian "Neatly written, full of calamitous moments in which the comedy is suddenly elbowed aside by genuine emotion" -- D J Taylor Spectator "Hovering adroitly between tragedy and farce...a good novel to savour by the pool in Tuscany this summer" -- Angus Clarke The Times "Duckworth is a worthy heir to a tradition of seductive, cultured literary monsters that includes Humbert Humbert, Hannibal Lecter and John Lanchester's Tarquin Winot" -- John Dugdale Sunday Times "mordant thriller" -- three stars Telegraph
