‘An intriguing situation, seamless pacing, a rising sense of menace and a surprise ending bring Dunmore’s new novel into the winners’ circle.’
(Publishers Weekly)

‘ ... every stratum is landmined with bigger questions about justice, power and responsibility. Helen Dunmore forms her sentences precisely, but as a shape-shifter easily inhabiting different countries, decades and personalities. Her book is a love story, a Vietnam novel, a thriller, social anthropology, psychology, and an essay on memory, the nature of the past and personal accountability. It is terrific.’
(Gill Pyrah, The Telegraph)

‘Lovely, sensuous prose is this author’s trademark ... A brilliantly plotted, thrilling fable unravelling dark, sad secrets.’
(Mail on Sunday)
