I can see why so many people are enthusiastic about Yrsa's work. It's very engaging, fresh and exciting. -- James Patterson A grisly chiller set in the depths of winter ... Her mystery is absorbing and, untypically, instead of the usual gloomy middle-aged man, her sleuth is a young woman ... It's an accomplished debut, with credible characters and a personable heroine.

Sunday Express
