Críticas:

"Aud Torvingen is a classic noir hero. . . . .Griffith is a writer of considerable gifts. Her sentences shimmer, her powers of observation and description are razor sharp." The New York Times Book Review
"With Stay, Griffith proves she can write crime fiction that stacks up more than favorably with the work of the best writers in the field.... Dennis Lehane, Andrew Vachss and James Lee Burke have each taken crime fiction to a new level and each has expanded the possibilities of the genre. Nicola Griffith is the next name on a very short list." Tacoma News Tribune
"Sleek, sexy, and decidedly dangerous, Aud...is everything a suspense novel heroine should be." The Advocate
"A noir thriller with a female protagonist who makes La Femme Nikita look like a Powerpuff Girl." Details
"Griffith has a fine way with character and a sure talent." Los Angeles Times
"Griffith's real genius is in her portrayal of the brilliant, though damaged, Aud, who embodies the traits of the mythical Norse berserker. . . . A finely nuanced, frightening plunge into the dark heart of an exceptional woman." Village Voice
"Griffith's tautly balanced prose perfectly complements her heroine's erratic progress. . . . [She] skillfully links sensual details with emotional content, anchoring us firmly in Aud's brutal, beautiful world." Seattle Times
Stay is simply gorgeous a powerful character study in the rough domain of mystery and adventure. Dorothy Allison, author of Bastard Out of Carolina
"Griffith employs a crime thriller's page-turning audacity and hard-boiled heroine without succumbing to cheap genre cliches. Like the protagonist, the language has a steely snap to it. . . . Stay is a captivating read." Out
Aud, the protagonist of this novel, is an intuitive, old-fashioned sleuth who would do Elmore Leonard proud. Entertainment Weekly
Griffith's prose is at once brutal and beautifully wrought. Stay has a central character both hard-boiled and a softie at heart, and momentum like a car wreck. San Diego Union-Tribune
