"Rash, as always, has an absolutely sure sense of place .... He is a riveting storyteller."
"Rash is grappling here with age-old questions of good and evil, selfishness and unselfishness, empathy and compassion and its lack. The Risen is an important - and intriguing - novel from one of our master storytellers. In its pages, the past rises up, haunting and chiding, demanding answers of us all."
