"Don't pick up a Mackay book unless you've got spare time. They're habit-forming."—Janet Maslin, The New York Times
"The [Glasgow] trilogy was a bravura performance, and one had every reason to expect that Mackay would do more with such rich material. That expectation has now been met, and rousingly so."—Dennis Drabelle, The Washington Post
"A piece of writing that lives up to its gritty title . . . We can't get enough of this morally complex antihero. . . . It is a joy to wallow in the muck with Mackay, who writes in a bold style that reflects confidence rather than bravado, occasionally breaking up the tension with a wry joke."—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
"Contemporary noir doesn't boast a more elegant stylist than Mackay. Even in evoking a world of scuzziness, he makes the lure of redemption sing."—Lloyd Sachs, Chicago Tribune
"A dark read, complex but satisfying, and all the more real for it. . . . I frankly cannot imagine a situation where anyone picking up the novel would not want to immediately dive into Mackay's past work, which is its own fully realized dark criminal universe."—Joe Hartlaub, BookReporter
"Mackay continues to ascend the ranks of hard-boiled British crime fiction authors. His latest novel [is] streaked with black humor and a fast-paced plot that never sacrifices the truly fleshed-out characters."—Library Journal (starred review)
"Morally complex . . . Filled with bloody intrigue, Scottish slang, and enough twists and turns to keep even the most astute reader guessing, this is hard-boiled fiction at its finest."—Publishers Weekly
