'Blood-boltered and agonizingly hilarious' John Banville, New York Review of Books

'Garnier plunges you into a bizarre, overheated world, seething death, writing, fictions and philosophy. He's a trippy, sleazy, sly and classy read' A. L. Kennedy

'Tense, strange, disconcerting and slyly funny, this is - for such a short book - richly satisfying. The characters, all original and convincing, are deftly -realised, and the story exerts a compelling grip... His mordant literary edge makes these succinct novels stimulating and rewarding. We can only hope that more appear soon' Sunday Times

'The final descent into violence is worthy of J G Ballard' (4 stars) The Independent

'A master of the surreal noir thriller - Luis Buรฑuel meets Georges Simenon' TLS

'A mixture of Albert Camus and JG Ballard' Financial Times

'Fuses dark comedy and existential despair ... a takedown of the haughty residents of an exclusive retirement community. All that's needed is a caravan of Gypsies to turn these smug provincials into savage beasts' Marilyn Stasio, New York Times

'Garnier (1949-2010) packs humor, insights into aging, and a darkly pessimistic assessment of mankind into this slender crime novel' Publishers Weekly

'Arch and lyrical ... a funny and outlandish story' Crime Thriller Fella
