The plot is wonderful, the characterisation of a family in crisis is both sharp and sympathetic, and the author does not shy away from examining the less palatable aspects of relations between the police and the public.
Sharp, perceptive prose and meticulous attention to detail... a literary force to be reckoned with.
She handles this topical and gripping tale with expert skill.
I loved it . . . Anna is a great, original character and Karen Campbell has a great way with images.
