Reviews for Hudson's Kill

A page-turning historical thriller... A perfect holiday read. * Irish Independent on The Devil's Half Mile * Fascinating and well drawn. * The Times on The Devil's Half Mile * A meticulously researched historical thriller... with strong, multifaceted [characters] and tight plotting. I will impatiently await the sequel. * Patrick Taylor, author of the Irish Country Books series, on The Devil's Half Mile * The prose is rich... a joy. * The Times * Absolutely loved this book. What an amazing adventure. Hirsch grabs you by the hand and pulls you into the fascinating and seamy underbelly of 19th century New York. It's Gangs of New York and CJ Sansom rolled into one; a thrilling ride, mesmerising locations, and a compelling murder mystery all at once. * C. S. Quinn, author of The Bastille Spy * A wild horse-and-carriage ride through early 19th century New York... Meticulously researched, the novel brings the city to life in lurid sensory detail. * Noel O'Reilly, author of Wrecker *
