Praise for Smoke and Whispers

“You can always tell when a pro is clicking on all cylinders. Smoke and Whispers, Mick Herron’s fifth novel, crackles from the start . . . Atmospheric, full of surprises, with some pools of seductive prose.”
ForeWord Reviews

“In this assured mystery from British author Herron . . . does a nice job of planting red herrings and making [Sarah Tucker’s] amateur sleuthing plausible.”
—Publishers Weekly

Smoke and Whispers is an electrifying story that doesn’t let up from start to finish . . . A most original, satisfying suspense thriller.”
—Mysterious Reviews

“Always interesting and entertaining . . . Anyone who starts the Zoë ‘tetralogy’ will be rewarded by continuing with the series.”
International Noir Fiction

Praise for Mick Herron

“Mick Herron never tells a suspense story in the expected way.”
—The New York Times Book Review

“Stylish and engaging.”
—The Washington Post
“Good characterization, dialogue and well-paced narrative make this confident first novel frighteningly plausible.”
—Daily Telegraph

“Masterful . . . How Herron is able to tie all these events together will test the sleuthing ability of even the most savvy readers as one surprise engenders another. The intricate plot, coupled with Herron’s breezy writing style . . . results in superior entertainment that makes most other novels of suspense appear dull and slow-witted by comparison.”
—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
