‘Rewarding subtlety and insight into the best and worst of human nature.’ – Jane Shilling, The Times

‘Fascinating . . . a journey into the heart of Yorkshire gone by, this is a powerful book, constantly informed by the hulking moor above the town.’ – Condé Nast Traveller

‘Compelling.’ – Sunday Times

Lying with the Enemy

‘A novel of exceptional style and momentum, sustained at a high emotional pitch, and beautifully constructed.’ – Alan Furst, New York Times Book Review.
