Reviews
Praise for Down Cemetery Road

"[Herron's] first novel, Down Cemetery Road, begins with the funniest dinner party scene I have ever read, and then, after a nearby explosion, shifts into thriller territory."
--Los Angeles Review of Books

"Good characterization, dialogue and well-paced narrative make this confident first novel frighteningly plausible."
--The Daily Telegraph

"[Down Cemetery Road] shifts from domesticity with violence and private detectives--initially seeming something like Kate Atkinson's detective novels in both the quality of the writing and the lightness of tone--to something like Christopher Brookmyre at his best . . . Herron is a major writer of considerable wit and talent."
--International Noir Fiction

Praise for Mick Herron

"Mick Herron never tells a suspense story in the expected way."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Stylish and engaging."
--The Washington Post

"A superb thriller . . . Herron may be the most literate, and slyest, thriller writer in English today."
