An absorbing novel about lives spiralling out of control and the drastic measures required to right them, Economist
The characters are wonderfully written and I loved escaping to the gossipy world of the film set, Good Housekeeping, Book of the Month
Boyd keeps the plot racing along, yet for all the twists, the real delight is in William Boyd's wry portrait of a bygone age . . . Boyd's usual sure touch is evident throughout this tender, gently comic work, Independent
One of our best contemporary storytellers. . . Trio embraces comedy, tragedy and redemption. It succeeds impressively because of its dramatic, often sensational, revelations, Spectator
I am a huge fan of William Boyd and the tender way he writes about the flaws and frailties of his characters. Trio is his best novel in years, Red, The Best Books to Read this October
Reading William Boyd's Trio is like shrugging on a worn leather jacket on the first brisk morning of autumn: cosy but cool . . . He has enormous fun with the worlds - and egos - of page and screen, The Times --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

Boyd introduces the three characters as they wake up on a summer morning. By the final pages the film is in the can and their lives have changed. The story alternates between each of the three, from their point of view, variously optimistic, uncertain, anxious and afraid. The narrative is woven round a clever plot. Parts are found for French philosophers, cheap pornographers, crooked businessmen, dishy scaffolders, caring doctors, private detectives, FBI and CIA.
It is very readable – almost finish-in-one sitting. There are lots of clever passages. Boyd is a very good writer. But that was all really. The only character I really cared about was Anny and there was one major flaw.
From the moment Anny stirs from her dreams it is clear that she is based on Jean Seberg. This makes the development of her character totally predictable. This is especially so since the recent and highly praised biopic starring Kristen Stewart.
I guess the ending is acceptable but no more.
