“Paul Cornell is a triple threat, the kind of writer other writers hate. He writes award-winning short stories. He writes epic television episodes for all your favorite BBC shows. He writes kickass comic books and graphic novels. You'd think that would be enough for anyone, but no, not Paul... now he's gone and written a novel too! I suspect it will be just as good as everything else he's written, and that's not fair at all. No doubt this time next year he will be writing hit songs, radio plays, and ribald limericks, all of them first rate. It's very annoying, but what can you do? Aside from reading him. . . .” —George R. R. Martin
“An irresistible blend of guns, gangsters, cops and monsters.” —Ben Aaronovitch, author of Midnight Riot
“Paul Cornell has written a truly ingenious police procedural which happens to be the best supernatural London story since Neverwhere.” —Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author of Discount Armageddon
