Vivid and compelling, with great evocation of the 1980s period.
Perfectly structured . . . a new Essex reimagined as a noir landscape.
The smell of the marshes permeates every page . . . This is old-style policing set in an interesting period.
Brilliantly engineered police procedural.
A fast-moving thriller . . . strong characters, dark humour and a terrific sense of place. I was totally absorbed.
With well-rounded characters, a terrific sense of time and place and masterful plotting, this solid police procedural is a 24-carat holiday read.
