The Water's Edge Reviews


"If you're in search of an antidote to the in-your-face energy of American crime fiction, this quiet, slender, bracingly bleak tale could well be it" * The Sunday Times *
"As a portrait of a community possessed by suspicion, The Water's Edge can scarcely be bettered" * Independent *
"It's heart-rending, sometimes cold, forensic writing; she pushes you into tight, uncomfortable corners. She's good" * Scotsman *
"It's difficult to out-creep Karin Fossum" * Time Out *
"An exceptionally fine story, Fossum's real narrative appeal rests on her ability to see the humanity in even the most wretched soul" * New York Times *
