CREATOR OF WORLD WAR II DETECTIVE, FRANK MERLIN
"This is to my shame the first Mark Ellis book I've read. If the others evoke a vanished London so impressively, are graced with such complex plots and deep characterisation, and, above all are written so well I shall have to read them all."
"Extraordinarily atmospheric and compelling, Dead in the Water is a wonderfully intelligent and complex story."
"Mark Ellis has shown himself to be a historical crime writer of the first rank. This is a pacy, gripping, taut thriller that rampages across the bombed out landscape of wartime London. Loved it!"
"A very satisfying puzzle, expertly crafted."
“A whirlwind of an international historical thriller...another incredible addition to a phenomenal series... I firmly believe that the Frank Merlin series is one of the best to be written over the past 10 years."
