PRAISE FOR SATURDAY’S CHILD
“Saturday’s Child is a knockout, written with the kind of energy and passion that far too few writers can muster. Fresh and fierce, it raises the bar for hardboiled fiction on both sides of the Atlantic.”—Laura Lippman, author of the New York Times bestseller What the Dead Know
“Audacious and volatile . . . The shabby Manchester /Newcastle world of drugs, booze, and violence is wonderfully described in a vibrant, often hilarious slang.” —Boston Globe
