'By the bottom of the fist page I knew I had found an exceptionally good writer. This is a real page turner.'
'A bloody good and wonderfully written tale! Tried to read as slowly as I could, to make it last as long as possible. Can't wait to read more.'
'This is a cracking good read, even better than Glover's first Kitty Lockwood book. I think we have a new genre on our hands, Northumberland noir'
