Case Study has been named as one of the New York Times 100 Notable Books of 2002. It was also shortlisted for the Gordon Burn Prize, Ned Kelly International Crime Prize and longlisted for the Booker Prize and the Historical Writers’ Association Gold Crown award.

I’m delighted to say that it is now finally available in North America, published by the good people of Biblioasis. You can order it in the US and Canada here or in the UK here.
