‘Unique in current British crime fiction: truthful affirmative and exciting. Planted in the real world and looking good on it’ Literary Review
‘Sal Kilkenny has to be one of the best private detective creations on the market at the present time’ Gateway
‘The writing is accomplished and makes for very easy reading, much in the style of Ruth Rendell. Staincliffe has no need of padding or literary frills – it’s just a good story, well told’ Bookbag
