Praise for The Lemur

The Lemur is a complicated story of murder, secrets and the past catching up to the present. Irish actor John Keating lends a nice tone to the narration.” – Canada.com

 
Praise for CHRISTINE FALLS
 
“A page-turner told in prose so beautiful you’ll want to read some passages repeatedly.... Intricately plotted, beautifully written.” —The Boston Globe
 
“Measured, taut, and transfixing...Benjamin Black’s plotting is methodical, detailed, and always gripping. You can smell the smoke in Quirke’s favorite pub and touch the cool walls in a Boston convent he later visits.” —USA Today
 
“Swirling, elegant noir...Crossover fiction of a very high order...Rolls forward with haunting, sultry exoticism...toward the best kind of denouement under these circumstances: a half inconclusive one.” —The New York Times
