Product description

Review

An electrifying read... I haven't read anything so terrifying since Red Dragon., STEPHEN KING

Patient, stylish and incredibly suspenseful., LEE CHILD

A magnificent, thoroughly unnerving psychological thriller written in a lush, intoxicating style. I dare you to look away., JUSTIN CRONIN

THE POISON ARTIST is an elegant, gripping, hair-raising gothic chiller, a wicked mix of Poe, The Silence of the Lambs, and Vertigo. Settle in for a long night of reading-once this one grabs you, it doesn't let go., WILLIAM LANDAY, New York Times best-selling author of DEFENDING JACOB

this is a cinematic and phantasmagoric treat... Obsession and violent death collide in an elegantly written thriller., THE INDEPENDENT

THE POISON ARTIST takes an old film noir set-up - man meets femme fatale and starts to fear that she might be even more dangerous than she looks - and brings it into the modern world...a superior cat and mouse story, with an effective twist in the tail., MAIL ON SUNDAY

Moore has a great gift for the macabre and the creepy., THE TIMES

... recalling not only Poe and West Coast noir, but also literary tales of heroes besotted with belle dames sans merci., SUNDAY TIMES

With its crisp, vivid writing - not a word is wasted - and multi-layered plotting, The Poison Artist is as satisfying as it is deeply unsettling. Moore has conjured a disjointed but gorgeous absinthe dream that enfolds the reader like a deadly fog. Highly recommended., GUARDIAN

Spiralling down from dream into nightmare, The Poison Artist is thoroughly unnerving and classily executed., THE OBSERVER

Review

The Poison Artist is an electrifying read, building from shock to shock. I read the last 100 pages in a single sitting. The last chapter is an absolute stunner. I haven't read anything so terrifying since Red Dragon. - Stephen King

Patient, stylish and incredibly suspenseful. - Lee Child

A magnificent, thoroughly unnerving psychological thriller written in a lush, intoxicating style. I dare you to look away. - Justin Cronin

The Poison Artist is an elegant, gripping, hair-raising gothic chiller, a wicked mix of Poe, The Silence of the Lambs, and Vertigo. Settle in for a long night of reading-once this one grabs you, it doesn't let go. - William Landay
