What the Critics Say

Praise for Marnie Riches' previous series:
"Fast, furious, fantastic.... One killer thriller!" (Mark Edwards)
"A strong, edgy debut that deserves to do well." (Clare Mackintosh)
"Raw, brutal and utterly compelling. Riches is an explosive new talent." (David Mark)
"Marnie Riches arrives with a fully formed narrative skill that suggests decades of experience; she's created a wonderfully idiosyncratic heroine, prone to bad judgement, and placed her in an artfully constructed novel that even incorporates cogent discussions of sexuality and gender. Ms Riches is clearly a name to watch!" (Barry Forshaw, author of Euro Noir and The Rough Guide to Crime Fiction)

added to the story and brought me right into the Manchester party scene. some of the characters were a little clichéd though.
