Review

"Quite an achievement...Jones explores how love may be warped and threatened by politics or polite society but will ultimately endure. She may not have strayed too far from her debut but this follow-up shows that she is no one hit wonder" -- Lucy Atkins Sunday Times "Stylish fiction follow-up to Orange Prize-shortlisted The Outcast" The Sunday Times "This is an unforgiving, far from comfortable read, but a very compelling one" -- Tina Jackson Metro "Sadie Jones pulls no punches in her description of the savagely unsophisticated island war. An exceptional book that shudders with the weight of human responsibility" -- Kerry Fowler Good Housekeeping "Jones writes brilliantly; you quickly inhabit Hal and Clara's world; from the dank, metallic smell of the interrogation room to the taste of White Ladies at the Limassol Club that linger long after you've reached the end" -- Claire Longrigg Psychologies
