Praise for "Cradle Song": "A rewarding experience . . . This is murder at its most foul, crime at the deep end."--"Spectator" "Cradle Song is a superbly paced book. . . . This is classic crime noir... Edric can also produce beautiful prose and arresting images as well as incisive social satire... Magnificently achieved."--Giles Foden "From the Trade Paperback edition."

As great as the debutReviewed in the United States on 27 May 2012
The second novel in the trilogy set in the city of Hull, "Siren Song" is as great as the debut. Mr. Edric's books are not just crime fiction, but true literature. He writes about human condition, its sins and fears, crimes and, most of the time, lack of punishment. His reluctant hero, Leo Rivers, struggles with powerfull villains and alnost equally powerfull emotions and passions. He is a sad fighter, without much faith or hope, but with the uncontrolable need to pursue and try, no matter what the consequences might be.
