Praise for Dolphin Junction

“A collection that demonstrates the breadth of Herron’s talent . . . Designed to showcase the author’s mastery of plot twists.”
—Sarah Weinman, The New York Times Book Review

“Each [story] delivers a surprise, a shock, or a shiver, with plenty of Herron’s trademark smoke-and-mirror misdirection and sardonic humour.”
—The Guardian

“11 crystalline and often hilarious little nightmares . . . Twisted tales as breezily funny as they are beautifully composed.”
—Shelf Awareness

“Outstanding tales that range from taut and terrifying to cleverly ironic and subtly humorous . . . There’s something for everyone in this diverse and satisfying collection.”
Booklist, Starred Review

“The 11 entries in British author Herron’s first story collection offer wit, original metaphors, surprising plots, and seemingly placid scenes full of sinister undercurrents.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Filled with delicious surprises . . . Perfect for readers eager to have the wool pulled over their eyes again and again.”
—Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Mick Herron

“Out of a wickedly imagined version of MI5, [Herron] has spun works of diabolical plotting and high-spirited cynicism, their pages filled with sardonic wit, their characters approaching the surreal.”
The Wall Street Journal

“Mick Herron is one of the finest writers of his generation.”
—Steve Cavanagh, author of the Eddie Flynn novels
[Herron] really is funny and his cynicism is belied, here and there, by flashes of the mingled tenderness and anger that seem to define Britain’s post-Brexit self-reflections.”
—Charles Finch, USA Today
“Herron’s morbidly witty backdrop hosts incisive storytelling with a rich mix of engaging characters.”
—Financial Times

“Hilarious and suspenseful . . . Sharper than most espionage fiction being written today and manages to stay uncannily contemporary.”
—St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“Herron is a subtle stylist, and he strikes a perfect balance of big-hearted humor and thrilling spy stuff.”
—The Seattle Times
