"Tony Black is my favourite British crime writer."
"A darkly entertaining and splendidly gritty read.”
"Tony Black is a prolific author who has gained plenty of recognition, but deserves much, muchmore. There’s a reason Irvine Welsh calls Black his favourite British writer."

"Clever intuitive prose and a great deal of storytelling art makes A Taste of Ashes rather more delicious than the title would suggest. Black is indeed back. Highly Recommended.”
