Review:

'A quite remarkable debut novel' Birmingham Post. (Birmingham Post)

'This subtle and superb novel brings the freezing landscape of the Canadian woods to such vivid life that the landscape itself becomes a strong character within the story. Once you have dived into the tiny, closeted world of Caulfield and its forbidding surroundings, you will certainly not wish to leave' Crimesquad.com. (Crimesquad.com)

'Stef Penney's hefty first novel The Tenderness of Wolves, mines her setting and period for all it's got and then some, injecting plenty of invented intrigue and Da Vinci Code like revelations of Huge Cultural Importance whenever she can. The result is an entertaining, well-constructed mystery that jazzes up the 'real' history in a way that's more Ron Howard than Pierre Berton ... sexy, suspenseful, densely plotted storytelling ... a first-rate gripper with a notably sensual as well as psychological understanding of its main characters. More than this, it is a novel with far greater ambitions than your average thriller, combining as it does the themes of Conrad's Heart of Darkness with Atwood's Survival, and lashing them to a story that morphs Ian Rankin' Andrew Pyper, The Globe and Mail. (Globe and Mail)

'A highly assured debut ... Stef Penney has written an absorbing and stylish mystery' The Glasgow Herald. (Glasgow Herald)
