Editorial reviews

The Girl Who Fell from the Sky

Mawer’s book is slick and thrilling and grown-up, like a slightly seedy uncle who smokes, drinks whisky and is always off seeing a man about a dog. Like that uncle, it’s also ephemeral and marginally unsatisfying: but don’t let that get in the way of what is an absorbing novel full of treachery, twilight and terror.
