Reviews


"So it's farewell my lovely and we're off, on a package tour through gumshoe thriller, film noir, road movie . . . and chivalric romance . . . An ambitious, stylish novel." --Candice Rodd, "Independent on Sunday"

"If any British writer can try on the mantle of Calvino, Dyer can. He has a poet's gift with metaphor as well as an ability to grasp ideas, hold them, pass them on." --Peter Jukes, "New Statesmen"

""As elegant as a mathematical theorem correctly expressed." --"The Sunday Times

""Dyer injects an almost magical randomness into what ought to be the most conventional of tales, and gives us Surrealism where we might have expected Dirty Realism . . . Its after-image is hard to erase." --"The Spectator"
Praise for "The Search: "

"A take on the detective/noir genre in the vein of Auster, Calvino, and Borges. . . . Dyer creates a series of puzzles, which are sure to send some back for a second read. . . . [Dyer's] considerable talents, including the ability to write in other veins, are on display here." --"Publishers Weekly""So it's farewell my lovely and we're off, on a package tour through gumshoe thriller, film noir, road movie . . . and chivalric romance . . .
