Steve Mosby is one of the finest writers in the UK . . . Mosby takes the serial killer genre and provides something new and exciting . . . This is a book - and author - I will endlessly recommend — Luca Veste
Steve Mosby is one of the most consistently and innovatively creepy writers working right now. With You Can Run he takes the serial killer thriller to a higher level, creating a subtly off-kilter world suffused with low key menace, where moments of intense disquiet and stinging emotion disturb as much as the terrifying evil at its core' — Eva Dolan
