From Library Staff

Part thriller and mystery, but with strong horror and dystopian elements, this first book in the Forgotten Gods series is ripe with great characters and excellent plotting. Pinborough, who has written many novels of horror, shows why she has such a strong following outside the U.S.

Serial killer cop drama, with a bit of the supernatural thrown in. Being a veteran reader of Val McDermid's books, I recognized the slow-starter as one of those books to sock you in the end. I didn't get all of the puzzle until the last 30 pages. Can't wait to read the other books in the series.

A little slow to start for me, but once it got going I found it pretty interesting. The final quarter really moved quickly.
