`A storm of a story... London has never looked so threatening' --Daily Mirror

`A thriller of hide and seek among London's low life. Think John Buchan meets John le Carre' -- Tatler

`Highly entertaining and characteristically expert' --Daily Telegraph

`He braids a taut plot with musings on identity and corruption, offering lingeringly atmospheric glimpses of London's many hidden selves' -- Daily Mail

`A mini exploration of the nature of modern citizenship combined with a picaresque tour of the various strata of modern metropolitan life' -- Guardian
