'Japrisot writes with warmth and has a gift for rendering almost every character instantly likable.' New Yorker 'A magician who lays out the truth on the page.' Le Monde Praise for Sebastien Japrisot 'With an instantly recognisable style and great story-telling techniques, he might be called the Graham Greene of France' The Independent 'The most welcome talent since the early Simenons' New York Times 'Utterly captivating' The Guardian 'A cordon bleu mixture of suspense, sex, trick psychology and fast action' Publishers Weekly 'Diabolically clever' Anita Brookner, author of Hotel du Lac 'Japrisot holds a unique place in contemporary fiction. With the quality and originality of his writing, he has hugely contributed to breaking down the barrier between crime fiction and literary fiction' Le Monde 'A marvellous storyteller' Telerama 'Unreeled with the taut, confident shaping of a grand master ... Funny, awful, first-rate. A rich and resonant sonata in black, astutely suspended between mythic tragedy and the grubby pathos of nagging everyday life' Kirkus Reviews
