'The Swiss master of the astounding plot' --Sunday Times Crime Club

'It's not that Dürrenmatt always took the road less chosen, more that he carved out an entirely different and perverse path through the literary undergrowth' --Crime Time

'The novel has the most wonderful collection of strange and charismatic characters. Ingenious... original... challenging' --Nudge Books
