Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This exciting novel is both a meticulous police procedural and a tense, believable political thriller…Hill is an award-winning narrator, and it’s easy to see why. He keeps the pace moving briskly and finds voices for the characters that help define their personalities.” Kliatt
“Dick Hill translates Mankell’s minimalist narrative style without flashiness and generates tension at the same time, an impressive feat. Hill seamlessly switches viewpoints and accents among Swedish, Russian, and South African characters with absolute believability.” AudioFile
