Praise for "Cradle Song": "A rewarding experience . . . This is murder at its most foul, crime at the deep end."--"Spectator" "Cradle Song is a superbly paced book. . . . This is classic crime noir... Edric can also produce beautiful prose and arresting images as well as incisive social satire... Magnificently achieved."--Giles Foden "From the Trade Paperback edition."
The second stunning literary crime novel in the Song Cycle trilogy from the acclaimed author of Booker-longlisted Peacetime, and The Book of the Heathen. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.See all Product description

Am moving straight on to 'Swan' without delay and then the rest of Edric's work.
If you are the same then your time will be well spent reading Siren Song (but read Cradle Song first). Leo Rivers is an engaging, realistic PI with a strong moral sense (if this isn't an oxmoron!). The plot has twists and turns, but is beautifully readable, even poetic in places. The pace is good and the ending could not be predicted until the final pages...
I can't wait to see it transformed into a TV play....if the people who talent spot these things have any sense that is..
In short what it so desperately needed was less plot, more direct action and - please!! - less talking. Not one I'd recommend, I'm afraid - but as the sparkling reviews keep on (and on) telling us, perhaps the author's other works are better?
