The Shallows is a brilliantly modern Bonnie and Clyde thriller, with great pace and real emotion.Ian Ayris (April Skies)

‘Nigel Bird’s The Shallows is a tightly written and well-paced crime thriller that is full of well-drawn, realistic characters. Tense and involving, The Shallows is great stuff!’ Paul D Brazill (The Last Laugh)

The Shallows is a non-stop ride with a barrel-load of memorable characters and quirky plot ins and outs - very highly recommended!McDroll (The Wrong Delivery)

‘The Shallows is similar in content to a lot of what you find on the Barnes and Noble mystery shelves. But it's about a third of the price, contains no filler, and is considerably more human.’  Chris Rhatigan (Squeeze)

‘You won’t be disappointed; this is an excellent tale, and I highly recommend it.Math Bird (The Whistling Sands)
