"Intriguing and touching" * Independent * "To create an investigator who is both admirable and troubled... and yet individual and sympathetic, is a gift, and Wagner has it" -- Heather O'Donoghue * Times Literary Supplement * "Haunting and disturbing... A strange and clever psychological thriller that manages at once to be both chilling and refreshing" * The Times * "Intriguing and touching" * Independent on Sunday * "Wagner is not interested in ... catching a serial killer. He is writing about the mystery of death ... Rarely has a murder mystery come so close to the riddle of death. Wagner has what it takes: the ability to unnerve us" * Die Zeit *
