Stuart Turton's forthcoming second book, The Devil and the Dark Water (Bloomsbury Raven, October 2020) has picked up a couple of lovely endorsements this week.
Firstly, a Starred review from Kirkus:
"[Turton] posed knotty challenges for readers, has a colourful tale to tell and does so in highly entertaining fashion... A devilish saga that never runs out of cutthroat conspiracies."
Secondly, author Simon Lelic had this to say:
"Stunningly good. A page-turning mystery on an epic scale, intricately plotted and expertly landed."
In addition, author Jennifer Niven (All the Bright Places, Holding Up the Universe) tweeted her support for the book, after having previously chosen it as one of her picks for 2019.
Next, The Literary Review included the book in their July/August 2020 Crime Roundup, dubbing it "both terrifying and topical... Coming at a time when the world is scrambling for a vaccine against SARS-CoV-2, this novel makes for alarming reading."
Finally, Waterstones included it in their Compelling New Crime Fiction roundup: "Spookily prescient and and chillingly credible, Smith's vision of an antibiotic crisis grips from the very first page."
"For fans of Broadchurch... this searing depiction of coercive control and lost love will chill your bones."
