Praise for John McMahon: 'This unusually accomplished debut is the first in a projected series; with Marsh still having demons to deal with, the table is set for much more compelling, character-centric stories to come. Crime-fiction fans are advised to get in at the start.
[John McMahon is] a talented writer with a good sense of place, and readers are sure to look forward to Marsh's next outing.
Tight, fast and addictive, I blistered this book in a single day. It has everything top-drawer crime fiction demands
McMahon skillfully blends the old and the new and weaves it into spun gold.
Southern gothic mingles with modern noir
