"A witty exciting page-turner which becomes increasingly addictive.... Quite unlike anything else around - and all the better for that." (Daily Mail)
"This book is fabulous - funny, horrific, subversive - in short a wholly addictive read. I don't think I have enjoyed anything as much since Perfume." (Joanne Harris)
