Review

"Compelling…Engrossing…Gripping" (Sunday Times)

"Surprising and dark and excellent" (New York Times)

"A sinister story about guilt, atonement and restitution, fashioned from lean, prowling prose" (Herald)

"More than a stylish thriller… The central plot has parallels with The Bonfire of the Vanities, while the socialites could be straight out of The Great Gatsby" (Stylist)

"A gripping read" (Kirkus)

"A superbly compelling novel... As menacing and engrossing as the best McEwan" (Robert Collins Sunday Times)

"Osborne brings together all his authorial talents in this gripping and sophisticated thriller" (Emma Hagestadt Independent)

"Stylish, somehow both lavish and muscular at the same time" (David Evans Independent on Sunday)

"Utterly compelling; at the risk of trotting out a cliché, I couldn't put the book down" (Justin Cartwright Observer)

"No mere imitation but a contribution to the shelf on which The Sheltering Sky and The Bonfire of the Vanities also sit, The Forgiven explores the clash of two cultures, each of which feels superior to the other. Osborne's writing is uncomfortably well observed; his story is sickeningly, addictively headlong." (Lionel Shriver)

Book Description
