  • “A novel of genuine power and conviction” Sunday Times

Praise for THE NINTH STONE (Weidenfeld & Nicolson edition):

  • “(the novel) excels in presenting complex ideas such as fatalism and human fraility in the face of fear and desire” Saturday Telegraph
  • “(this) debut novel is a very entertaining romp through a world of muckraking journalism, child labour and deadly cults … very enjoyable – perfect for curling up with on a miserable February day” Gloss Magazine
