"A Count of Monte Cristo for the dot.com generation...whatever Stephen Fry does, he has it -- that rare, unlearnable quality. When he speaks, you listen. When he writes, you read." -- "Literary Review" "Stylish...written up with zest and humour...a page-turner and full of fun." -- "Spectator""A revenge tragedy for our times." -- "The Times" "A taut thriller...a talent for terror and suspense-writing." -- "Sunday Telegraph"
