"The prose is rich with similes and the plot shocks."--Wall Street Journal

"Great fun from a masterful writer."--Kirkus STARRED review

"[April in Spain] crackles with the kinetic energy of an approaching thunderstorm as Banville brilliantly contrasts the blue skies of Spain with the wine-dark seas roiling inside his characters' heads."--Booklist STARRED review

"Banville rewards his readers with some of the finest prose in the mystery genre...and villains worthy of Agatha Christie's poisoned pen."--BookPage

"A compelling addition to Banville's extensive body of work."--LitHub

"Banville is, as always, so firmly in charge of his storytelling...[a tale] of mini-Shakespearean proportions."--​Toronto Star
