"An armchair time bomb" (Mail on Sunday)
"This is a novel to mirror the disintegration of our times, the unstated irony of which is that a politics so provincial can breed a writer and an art so universal" (Observer)
"A gripping read which you will find impossible to put down" (Literary Review)
"Very much the thinking person's thriller - utterly tense and riveting, but also posing an acute moral dilemma for an ordinary person caught up in the troubled politics of Northern Ireland" (Daily Express)
"It insists on being read at a sitting, for it is imperative to know what happens next" (Financial Times)
A tremendously gripping and compulsive read, overshadowed by the dark threat of the IRA.
