The obsessive world of pop culture becomes a dangerous, dark, bewitching place in Noon's utterly brilliant crime fiction debut. * William Shaw * Constantly surprising, the novel takes the form of the police procedural and pushes it in a variety of unexpected directions * Spectator * Noon's storytelling is assured and compelling ... it's a belter * Guardian * Slow Motion Ghosts is a triumph ... an ingeniously-plotted and multi-layered tale * Independent * The enjoyably convoluted plot encompasses a heartfelt and moving examination of the other-worldly appeal of glam rock for nerds and outsiders. If you weren't poleaxed by Bowie's death, this very absorbing novel will help to explain why others were. * The Telegraph *
