Praise for Reconstruction
“Mick Herron never tells a suspense story in the expected way, which is why his new novel, Reconstruction, reads as much like a puzzle mystery as it does a thriller . . . unpleasant things are bound to happen, and they do—but not until Herron has finished surprising us.”
—The New York Times Book Review
"Masterful . . . How Herron is able to tie all these events together will test the sleuthing ability of even the most savvy readers as one surprise engenders another. The intricate plot, coupled with Herron’s breezy writing style . . . results in superior entertainment that makes most other novels of suspense appear dull and slow-witted by comparison."
—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"Ingenious and heartfelt."
"In Herron's complex story everyone is a reconstructionist, either of their own baggage or of other people's lives or of the events around them . . . Spellbinding."
“Reconstruction sizzles and dazzles as readers slowly become more fully aware of the unique relationships between complex characters in this complicated tale.”—BookLoons
