Praise for Bernard Minier
‘Great storytelling, with a creeping sense of dread that would not disgrace Stephen King at his best’
‘Over the past few years, France has produced some of Europe’s most striking and original crime novelists. Bernard Minier is up there with the best’
The Sunday Times
‘A super-accelerated version of a Hitchcock thriller, with thrills and shocks on nearly every page . . . Minier reels out lurid, quick and dirty prose, dirty enough to blacken the fingers as we read’
