Ordinary Thunderstorms Reviews
"....All this indicates that Boyd may need to narrow his focus in order to make his undoubted talents effective ... But it would be churlish to be entirely dismissive of the attempt. Boyd's thriller is by and large competent and eminently readable.... If he has not been completely successful, it is because he has found himself distracted by other ideas and possibilities. That seems too good a thing in a writer to wish away." - The Guardian (UK)
