Review

"Methodical, detailed, and always gripping." --"USA"" Today"

"Elegant...[Black/Banville's] sinuous prose, subtle eroticism, and 1950s period detail do more than enough to put [his] series on the map." --"The New York Times"

"In "Elegy for April," Black's nailed down the recipe, the style and pace, that allows him to craft a story of suspense while filling it with sharp-eyed, bigger-picture observations." --"Time Out" (Chicago)

"Mr. Black/Banville has raised the bar for the soul's-night genre....Cool, atmospheric...memorably etched." --"The Dallas Morning News"

"The writing has an elegance and nimbleness that surpass almost all other genre fiction....[He] evokes Dublin--which he knows inside out--with an almost bitter love, and his feeling for the city's class and religious divisions and its urgent, albeit repressed, sexual atmospheres helps his characters spring from the page." --"Los Angeles"" Times"

"Quirke, the haunted Dublin pathologist and haphazard sleuth, returns in the third novel in Black's superb series of sharply etched, nearly Jamesian mysteries....In Black's atmospheric and penetrating works of Irish noir, pain, prejudice, greed, and violence brew behind lace curtains." --"Booklist" (starred review)
