"Banville sets up and then deftly demolishes the Agatha Christie format...superbly rich and sophisticated."--New York Times Book Review

"[A] deceptively complex mystery with literary flourishes...[A] brilliant mix of old tropes and sadly modern evil."--Booklist, STARRED review

"The sinister and unnerving Snow has all the trimmings of a classic country house mystery - body in the library, closed circle of suspects, foul weather - all elevated by Banville's immaculate, penetrating prose."--Peter Swanson

"A beautifully executed, nostalgia-churning throwback that directs the occasional wink at the reader."--Shelf Awareness

"Snow is easily one of his best - and one of the very best mysteries of this or any other year."--Globe and Mail

"Thoughtful and nuanced." --Seattle Times

"Snow continues to cement the legacy of one of our greatest living writers."--CrimeReads

"Perfect for the time of year when shadows grow longer and darker by the day."--BookPage

"Snow offers many reminders of Banville's mastery."--The Atlantic
