Product description

Review

Griffiths has become a dab hand at plotting and cranking up the tension. The murders, and the muddled humanity of the characters, keep us turning the pages - Independent

Crime that doesn't sacrifice good writing and clever characterisation for the sake of the plot - Red magazine

Elly Griffiths writes ever-more ingenious detective stories with a powerful sense of place and a varied cast of sympathetic and unusual characters. Her heroine is a winner - The Times

Griffiths weaves superstition and myth into her crime novels, skilfully treading a line between credulity and modern methods of detection - Sunday Times
