Loved this bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on 1 February 2018
Gale is a master of his craft. Yet again I was swept along by the characters . I needed to know what happened to these compelling crew. The pieces of the jigsaw slotted together seamlessly but I only vaguely guessed where each piece fit. I think this was one of his best books. I only have one more to read - 2 are on pre- order. Think I will have to start reading them all again

?Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 August 2018
I enjoyed the first part of the book, the second part got very sordid I felt. I am not a prude but this was too much for me and I didn't finish the book. This is very unusual for me as once I have started a book I can't help but go to the end. Disappointing.

Absorbing and difficult to put down.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 May 2021
Every great writer is a story teller at hear and what a brilliant story teller Patrick Gale is. Excellent plot and so easy to read with a vocabulary which was quite magical and flowed like honey. The subject matter was difficult but the writing provided understanding , sympathy and honest truth.
Five StarsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 August 2017
Patrick Gale is always a reliably intelligent, engaging, talented and thought-provoking writer.
