A dark, witty mystery with a unique take on Edinburgh - great stuff!' -Mason Cross; `The presence and flair of Kelly's writing makes this a highly compulsive read; one of those 'well, just one more chapter' sort of books. On top of that, the ending was not only unexpected, but a shining example of just how to finish the last page.' -The Ileach; `With dark wit and deadly charm, Kelly's skill at combining a fast-paced narrative with a tantalisingly intriguing mystery will make it difficult to stop reading.' -Chiara Bullen, CommonSpace; `If you haven't caught the Lesley Kelly book bug yet isn't it time you did? Lesley Kelly has cemented herself on the Scottish Crime Fiction scene and she has set the bar very high!' -Five Star review, Love Books Group; `Written with wonderfully dark humour and the wry observational opinions... It is time you became acquainted with the Health of Strangers. Bloody marvellous.' -GrabThisBook; `A fast paced story laced with humour...and that ending..WOW! Roll on book #4.' -Beauty Balm
