Taut with apprehension, surprising us with moments of tenderness and humour, The Other Side of the Bridge is a compelling, humane and vividly evoked novel with an irresistible emotional undertow. There was a surreal split second before the blood started to well up and then up it came, dark and thick as syrup.
