Supernatural novel: ''a tour de force version of the legend of the evil eye. The ending is the grimmest in all Blackburn's books'' (Sullivan ed, The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 37)

''throughout Blackburn's more routine work, however, it is often the case that what seem to be sf plot devices on introduction turn out to be explicable in terms of contemporary science by the story's close, or are McGuffins like the atom-bomb conspiracy in The Face of the Lion. Though his use of sf situations is often ingenious, and though even his most straightforward novels are prone to internal generic mutations from one form to another, it would be unduly stretching matters to describe Blackburn as a genuine sf writer'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
