Reviews
Praise for Why We Die

"Herron is a stylish writer with a mordant sensibility and a deadly wit. He's also a tricky plotter."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Dazzling . . . Smart, dogged and never down for the count, Zoë is a fine addition to the ranks of female P.I.s."
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"A dark, entertaining, off-kilter world in which anything can happen, and probably will."
--Kirkus Reviews

"The seamy side of Oxford, England, takes center stage as lives and plans collide in this bleak crime novel . . . British noir reminiscent of Jerry Raine's Smalltime."
--Booklist

Praise for Mick Herron

"Stylish and engaging."
--Washington Post

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

"Masterful . . . How Herron is able to tie all these events together will test the sleuthing ability of even the most savvy readers as one surprise engenders another. The intricate plot, coupled with Herron's breezy writing style . . . results in superior entertainment that makes most other novels of suspense appear dull and slow-witted by comparison."
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
