Ingeniously constructed . . . Andrew Martin's wry, amused tone is a constant joy . . . An altogether superior performance, The Martian Girl is a violent, funny, deadly serious entertainment. * Irish Times *
Martin's depiction of Coates's mentally unbalanced viewpoint is worthy of Simenon . . . I could not bring myself to stop reading until I found out what happened to [the characters]. * Daily Telegraph *
Martin is particularly good on the patter and atmosphere of Victorian theatre. A complex, but rewarding thriller. * The Times *
The music-hall background is absorbing, the contemporary story tense and at times terrifying and both are very funny and sharply written, in this book-within-a-book tale of paranoia. * Morning Star *
You won't be able to put it down. It's a clever, thrilling read, and Andrew Martin's ability to illuminate his characters through their vocabulary and patter remains as striking as ever. It's a book that demands concentration, but it's well worth the effort. * Crime Fiction Lover *
