“The sense of place is stifling in its intensity, and seldom has a waltz of the damned proven so hypnotic.” - The Guardian. “Great locations, hard-nosed dialogue and a twisting plot combine to create superb entertainment.” - Evening Standard. “What makes Temple so compelling is his divine use of language. The novel is written with grace and subtlety, elegant but also violent, dark and yet suffused with sympathy for the protagonists, cast in dialogue that is both distinctive and surprising.” - Daily Mail. “With crackling prose and sparkling dialogue, Temple has fashioned a fast-paced atmospheric police work of genuine class.” - Mail on Sunday.
