Besides being a gripping thriller, it's a fine meditation on luck, fate and chance and a wonderful evocation of Cambodia, a country of ghosts, spirits and shadows -- Sebastian Shakespeare * Daily Mail, Books of the Year * Edgy and gripping ... Written with unfailing precision and beauty, Hunters in the Dark stakes out territory different to the many writers to whom Osborne has been compared. -- Neel Mukherjee * Guardian * Cambodia...comes splendidly to life in Osborne's prose... This is a tip-top thriller. Osborne knows how to keep the pages turning; he is a name to watch -- Ian Thomson * Independent * If the purpose of a novel is to take you away from the everyday and show you something different, then Osborne is succeeding, and handsomely. Hunters in the Dark is a novel of immersion... shaped like a quiet dream. As such, it's an unqualified success, and I hope it enjoys a wide readership -- Lee Child * New York Times * Osborne's brilliance as a travel writer places his web of deceit, greed and need ... in a world conjured up with dazzling immediacy ... Sumptuous and sinister, languorous and tense, this is a novel that gives Osborne's remarkable talents haunting scope -- Peter Kemp * Sunday Times *
