Cara Massimina Reviews

A triumph * Daily Telegraph *
Sharp and witty, expertly paced, frequently horrific and often very funny * Times Literary Supplement *
An unusually classy thriller, true to life and not to be missed * Independent *
Entertaining black humour * Independent on Sunday *
Tim Parks presents the real, virginal, boastful, cracked Morris lurking behind his own justifications as matters turn lethal and ugly. Clever, blandly humorous and utterly immoral. * The Sunday Times *
