April in Spain Reviews

'An impeccably executed novel . . . Fans of [Benjamin] Black and Banville alike should be heartened to hear that Snow and April in Spain are only the first instalments of the new Strafford series, which promises to elevate the crime novel to new artistic heights.' ? Financial Times

'Deeply atmospheric; forensically psychological.' - Mick Herron

'Superb and shocking . . . more than a touch of genius.' ? The Times

'The narrative . . . is well constructed and full of excellent descriptions, but the book's most striking features are its characterisations and the psychological acuity of the writing.' ? Literary Review
