Product description

Review

"An unusual and fascinating take on a crime novel from the established and endlessly inventive Louise Welsh . . . With a strong central character and vivid depictions of the disorder that accompanies social breakdown, it's a gripping book that prepares the way nicely for the next volume."--Guardian

"Don't start reading this if you have a long to-do list, it's a hypnotically readable thriller and you won't get much don't until you've finished it . . . What's gripping about this is the way the two stories, the crime thriller and the gathering apocalypse combine to create something tenser and scarier than either alone. The way that society gradually disintegrates is brilliantly done; it makes you feel just how fragile civilization is."--Independent on Sunday

"I've felt for a while that we are in the mood for an intelligent slice of London-based dystopia, and I think Louise Welsh has cracked it with A Lovely Way to Burn . . . it kept me up all night nervously turning the pages."--Bookseller

"a fine example of one of my favorite modern concoctions: the apocalyptic mystery"--Black Gate

"Being immune to illness does not mean you're immune to a killer with a need . . . This dystopian mystery is the beginning of a series, so it will be interesting to see what happens to Stevie next."--Suspense Magazine

Book Description

The first book in a thrilling new crime trilogy from the author of The Girl on the Stairs.
