Product Details

Praise

“This dark thriller is an amazing debutacutely observed and meticulously crafted. Long live Hector Salgadoa thoroughly human detective-protagonist. I look forward to meeting him again.”  —John Verdon, bestselling author of Let the Devil Sleep
 
“Salgado’s rich inner life and Hill’s talents at plotting and prose bode well for a successful series.” Publishers Weekly

“Penetrating, atmospheric. . . . The plot is first-rate, with plausible twists and revelations [and] the book transcends the mystery genre with its focus on the dark secrets families keep. . . . Thoroughly compelling.” —Kirkus

“Reminiscent of Ian Rankin’s John Rebus or Jo Nesbø’s Harry Hole, Héctor Salgado is an intriguing new sleuth that crime fiction fans will want to follow as they explore the gritty side of another European city.” —Library Journal


Praise from the UK 
 
“Hugely impressive. . . . Hill’s book seems to have arrived fully-formed with confidence and authority, peeling back the skeins of deceit and betrayal in a most satisfying fashion.” The Independent
 
“Entertaining.” The Times
 
“A welcome corrective to snow-blindness from too much Nordic noir. . . . Excellent characterization, a sympathetic and engaging protagonist, and plenty of plot twists, with a cliffhanger ending that sets things up nicely for the next in the series.” The Guardian
