“A page turner that is guaranteed to satisfy mystery lovers.” (The Vancouver Sun)
“There’s a wonderful Glasgow-ness to Mina’s writing. Using various points of view, she captures a city full of hopelessness and hope, a place of deep class divides and gang crime, of loyalty and pride in belonging.” (NOW Magazine)
“The power of Mina’s writing is such that she can transport readers from placidity to violent pandemonium in the space of a paragraph.” (The Washington Post)
“Riveting. . . . An installment that exposes the bleakness of small-town Scotland as skillfully as it does the bustling mean streets of Glasgow.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))
“She’s up there with Ian Rankin among practitioners of character-driven Scottish noir.” (The Philadelphia Inquirer)
“A wee fine read.” (Winnipeg Free Press)
