Smoke and Whispers

Foreword Review — July / Aug 2009

You can always tell when a pro is clicking on all cylinders. Smoke and Whispers (Soho Constable, 978-1-56947-564-5), Mick Herrons fifth novel, crackles from the start as writer Sarah Tucker arrives in northern England to identify the body of a drowning victim believed to be her friend, a private detective tracking down a serial killer. Atmospheric, full of surprises, with some POOLS OF SEDUCTIVE PROSE.
