Acerca de


'Fantastic. Absorbing, moving, hugely gripping' Mark Billingham, bestselling author of the Tom Thorne novels 'Three possible candidates for the Granta U.K. class of 2013 are Ned Beauman, Joe Dunthorne and Simon Lelic. Lelic's three novels are breakneck, intelligent 'social thrillers' that even invade my dream-life' David Mitchell, author of Cloud Atlas 'Simon Lelic doesn't shy away from controversial issues ... He's billed as a crime writer, but his books are bigger than that. And in his work he finds his stride as somebody who can truly make us examine ourselves, and place ourselves in the scenarios he creates so masterfully. The action, when it comes, zips along at a fair old lick, but it is the thought processes of the protagonists that engage, along with the oppressive atmosphere Lelic has got down to a fine art. Terrific stuff' Irish Examiner 'Gripping ... Lelic, author of the highly acclaimed Rupture, unpicks the layers of vengeance, exploitation and fear that accrue around children that kill, and examines the terrible fall-out for anyone who goes against the vindictive current ... a compelling, thought-provoking page-turner' Psychologies 'Could this be Lelic's breakthrough book? It deserves to be' Guardian 'Quietly excellent legal thriller' Marcel Berlins, The Times 'An excellent psychological crime thriller from one of the genre's rising stars ... Zest, fresh perspective, insight and often quite beautiful writing, something you rarely see in populist thriller fiction ... Lelic's gift is for immediately unsettling the reader. Just who is narrating this? Who are these people? Where is this going? This wrong-footing isn't just gimmicky, however. It's an essential thread in the weave of this excellent novel ... Much of the joy of this book is about the disorientating nature of Lelic's story-telling ... bewitching' Metro 'Lelic was marked for stardom by his first two thrillers, Rupture and The Facility, and he confirms his place at the literary top table with this, his third ... Told with compelling force, and at considerable pace, it reveals the frightening law of unintended consequences: even a good man can be destroyed by the best intentions' Daily Mail 'Simon Lelic's first two crime novels attracted much well-deserved praise. His third The Child Who is equally good ... Despite its dark theme, this stark, powerfully written novel ends on a faint note of hope. Lelic is a writer to watch' Spectator
