Vivid and powerful
Askew asks intricate moral questions, while never ignoring the rigours of crime
An intricate, pacy, risky and intriguing novel.
Another top-notch slice of Scottish noir
Splendid debut... thoughtful and well-written.
As scarily plausible as it is utterly captivating, this is an absorbing and unforgettable debut.
Askew is a writer to watch
Moving and memorable.
Praise for All The Hidden Truths
Askew is a master of dialogue ... Birch is a great character ... There's a pleasing vein of dark humour ... The breakneck pace and adrenaline will leave readers as spent as the sleep-deprived DI Birch
Stunning debut... compellingly written.
Gripping, heartbreaking and horrifyingly plausible. I couldn't tear myself away from this book. Claire Askew is a stunning new voice in crime fiction.
Intriguing and brilliant
