"Unique characters and superb writing... I highly recommend."
"Another book from Zoë Sharp with strong female protagonists that is hard to put down."
"I love all of Ms Sharp's writing and while Charlie Fox will always be my favourite, the more I read of this pair the more I like them."
"Zoë Sharp has shown what a versatile writer she is by changing from her blockbuster Charlie Fox series (which you should read if you haven't) to these books about a CSI."
"Grace McColl is an endearing, smart and fascinating lead character as well and I look forward to the projected third novel in this trilogy. Grab this one as soon as it comes out-and if you haven't read DANCING ON THE GRAVE, grab that one too."
"As rich and fascinating as I expected with the added plus of the engaging new (to me) characters of CSI Grace McColl and Detective Nick (Weston). They're intriguing alone and compelling together."
"Sharp can be counted upon for providing admirable female characters against the backdrops of casual misogyny and domestic abuse and doing so with a light touch."
"I love the Charlie Fox series by Zoë Sharp, and didn't think this novel could be as good as those, but now that I have read BONES IN THE RIVER, I actually like it even better!"
"Thoroughly enjoyed the book. I could not put it down. Zoë Sharp never disappoints."
"I was instantly hooked."
"It's a cracking story, by a gifted author and I can't wait for more from either series. Highly recommended."
"I'm an enormous fan of Sharp's Charlie Fox, the ex-army turned bodyguard, who stars in 13 novels and who is my vote for the best ever female main protagonist in crime fiction! So I was a bit apprehensive that I wouldn't like this book as much. This was unfounded as Zoë Sharp is an incredibly good writer who is inventive, while remaining credible, in delivering her storyline twists."
