REVIEWS

Ings writes engagingly well, balancing pacy plotting with textured characters and opaque loyalties to tease the reader and making for a thoroughly enjoyable, intelligent yarn.
Independent on Sunday

Dead Water displays a subtle and persistent power that confirms Ings as one of the very few British writers to be both contemporary and genuinely challenging.
Guardian

modern science fiction in full pomp: it has a multitude of ideas, a wide-ranging narrative, an almost unbelievably ambitious casting of its net, taking one narrative chance after another. It is also a beautifully written novel, full of colour and inventive image.
Christopher Priest, author of The Prestige

Beautifully written... There are scenes and unexpected twists that rival the most propulsive page-turner.
Time Out

Highly enjoyable.
The Times

the pace and sinuous plotting of Ings's cracking second novel are certainly compelling... juicy novel.
Financial Times

highly ambitious, hugely entertaining novel... After reading this, you'll never drink water with quite the same insouciance again
Irish Times
