Heir apparent to Michael Crichton : Devour review, The Guardian UK
Over the moon that Devour is included in Barry Forshaw’s round-up of The Best Recent Thrillers in The Guardian (UK edition – 19 January 2017). Even more delighted to be described as ‘heir apparent’ to Michael Crichton.
Here is what it says:
“Quotidian logic is similarly challenged in LA Larkin’s Devour (Constable, £8.99), with investigative journalist Olivia Wolfe fetching up in a frigid Antarctica where something ancient and malign has been hidden beneath a frozen lake for millennia. Unearthing long-buried secrets may lead to Olivia saving just one life – or unleashing Armageddon. This is the kind of unlikely but tense scenario that the late Michael Crichton specialised in; it seems that in Larkin he has an heir apparent.”
