“A fiendishly clever story written with self-assured panache as told by unreliable narrators.
I was torn between a desire to race ahead to find out what would happen next and a wish to linger on and enjoy the prose.
Why isn’t this a bestseller?”

“Johnston’s handling of art and duplicity makes for a compelling composition – his colour and originality is tempered with enough sinister, dark and authoritative realism to entrap and engage the reader throughout.”
