Tight, fast and addictive, I blistered this book in a single day. It has everything top-drawer crime fiction demands
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.
Southern gothic mingles with modern noir
McMahon skillfully blends the old and the new and weaves it into spun gold.
