Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The unrelenting grimness, reminiscent of James Ellroy, and the uncompromising portrayal of a man in torment, make for a fully absorbing, if disturbing, read.” Publishers Weekly (starred review, a PW Pick)
“Tate is hardly the first dark, brooding detective with a tragic past in crime fiction, but he brings a fresh twist to the familiar type, as does the setting of Christchurch, New Zealand, which Cleave evokes with masterful precision.” Booklist
“Contemporary crime noir at its best, mined from the dark pit of the human psyche.” Kirkus Reviews
