What the critics say

A thriller. My word, you thirst for more . . . Catch and Kill is a rip-roaring account of the years spent chasing the Weinstein story and its spin-offs. It's a deep dive into the world of US media, Hollywood pay-outs, Donald Trump's eccentric ways, spies and spineless editors. And is it gripping . . . The page-turner, as illustrated by Farrow's Weinstein confrontation, is dripping with jaw-dropping revelations and moments of astonishing pathos . . . Farrow's reporting is incredibly rigorous. He has spoken, he said, to over 200 sources. It's evident in the book; the breadth of the story is staggering. He has the private eyes and the NYPD, the accusers and the whistleblowers. It's a rollicking read; I found myself laughing out loud, aghast, at the details, or else reading out segments to colleagues. Not since Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury - an eye-watering account of life inside the White House, in the first months of the Trump presidency - has a book so comprehensively lifted the lid on something so troubling Telegraph Extraordinary . . . As some American critics have already observed, Farrow's narrative has the pace of a thriller . . . Farrow's book captures the terror and paranoia that eat away at Weinstein's victims for the simple reason that he comes to experience them himself, a human mirror. The producer's sphere of influence extends ever outwards, like the powerful arms of some giant squid Observer - Rachel Cooke Read this book . . . Farrow's greatest success was to listen, believe and act, even at his own peril Los Angeles Times - Maria L. La Ganga Absorbing . . . The behavior documented in Catch and Kill is obviously and profoundly distressing . . . But there are some hopeful threads, too New York Times - Jennifer Szalai Darkly funny and poignant . . . a winning account of how it feels to be at the centre of the biggest story in the world. It is also, of course, a breathtakingly dogged piece of reporting, in the face of extraordinary opposition Guardian - Emma Brockes At the heart of every great noir is a conspiracy of evil that imbues the initial crime uncovered by the hero with a weightier resonance than was immediately obvious. So it goes with Catch and Kill Washington Post - Emma Bruenig Reads like a thriller ...The reveal in Catch and Kill is not that there are corrupt people; it's that corrupt people are in control of our media, politics, and entertainment and that, in fact, many of them remain in control The Cut - Rebecca Traister The year's best spy thriller is stranger - and more horrifying - than fiction . . . He weaves a breathless narrative as compelling as it is disturbing . . . bracingly exposes the rot that's persisted across elite American institutions for decades Entertainment Weekly - David Canfield Engrossing Hollywood Reporter Meticulous and devastating . . . Catch and Kill is part All the President's Men , part spy thriller Daily Mail Moves at a brisk pace, feeding readers each revelation in real time, interspersed with personal notes that make the stories stick Vanity Fair - Claire Landsbaum Catch and Kill is exhaustively reported . . . and compulsively readable, with nearly every page revealing a provocative detail about a household name in media or entertainment Rolling Stone - E. J. Dickson
