A darkly compelling thriller . . . Morrison succeeds in summoning Depression-era Glasgow in a powerful work of crime fiction
Morrison hasn’t so much written a novel as built a time machine: step in and be transported
This is Peaky Blinders territory, though with the police at its heart rather than gangsters. Packed with dramatic action and unforgettable characters, it casts a hypnotic spell and stirs the blood
Morrison writes with vividness and perception, and he is effective at showing action from multiple perspectives. Fast-moving and engaging
