“Goddard travels steadily, cleverly, inexorably from light to darkness. It’s the storyteller as magician: we only see what he wants us to see, when he wants us to see it. . . . [the book] had me utterly spellbound . . . cracking good entertainment.” —Washington Post, on Into the Blue

“The plotting in this intelligent thriller is exceptionally good.

“An absorbing read from a truly creative storyteller.” —Guardian, on Name to a Face

“A spellbinding storyteller.” —Sunday Independent, on Into the Blue
