`A turbocharged thriller ... With breakneck pace and a mature narrative command, de la Motte deftly spins out these divergent strands, until the intricate outlines of a deadly spider's web finally becomes visible-and inescapable' Publishers Weekly *Starred Review*`For all the book's twists and turns, de la Motte is completely at ease in thickening and expanding the plot. He never forces the action, instead tightening the web in which Sarac seems to be caught. The cast of characters is nicely varied; part of the pleasure is seeing through the bad guys before the protagonist does' Kirkus`An action-filled thriller that makes good use of an unreliable narrator ... An intriguing premise and a compelling lead character' Booklist`MemoRandom provides high quality all the way. The end is so violent and Pulp Ficition-like that I almost started giggling. This is a raw, bloody, effectively told story about organized crime, police officers with double agendas, and corruption on high levels in the political sphere' Aftonbladet`A thrilling novel about secret informants among the police force' Mariestads Tidning
