‘…brilliantly constructed…Stewart is a patient storyteller and accomplished writer…’ (NIck Toczek)
‘…it’s a goody; a dark tale of intense friendship outlining betrayal and jealousy…’
‘Think of Whatever happened to the Likely Lads with drugs, murder, sex and yearning; think Stephen King’s Stand by me, and you have an idea of this book.’
‘…if you are after a rollocking good read for the summer…then do snaffle this book up ASAP…’
