Praise for Anja de Jager

An absorbing read with the smack of reality‘ Daily Mail

‘The book succeeds as a portrait of both a city and, in its heroine, a delightfully dysfunctional personality’
Sunday Express

‘Impressive . . . De Jager is as good on dodgy family relations as she is on police procedure’
The Times
