Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 'Written with a crystalline prose and simplicity of style it is startlingly original. There is not one false sentence.' Independent on Sunday 'This is a story of friendship with the cleverest of plot twists, and descriptions so vivid you can feel the heat of Stanley's desert prison burning off the page. A total must-read.' The Times 'An exceptionally funny and generous book that is also a tightly plotted detective novel.' Guardian
