'a novel in the hugely experienced hands of David Hewson that defies expectation. Hewson's style is tight, lean, almost like a film script' Express
'clear, clipped prose is beautifully up to the task, as is his forensic attention to the original's details . . . And the ending leaves a very different, but no less thought-provoking taste' Mirror
'David Hewson should be commended for writing such a page-turner of a book . . . The Killing has enough twists and turns to satisfy not only any avid follower of the series but also readers that are coming to it first time around' www.shotsmag.co.uk
