Review:

‘A thrilling new crime series’ Woman and Home

‘It comes as no surprise that Medina has created a character of density and intricacy in Flynn. May the series prosper’ Daily Mail

‘A tense and pacy thriller, 4 stars’ The Sun

‘Medina demonstrates that she’s a considerable find’ Independent

‘Excellent start to a new series’ Sunday Express

‘[Medina] writes about the horrifying consequences of war from the standpoint of a clear-eyed but sympathetic insider’
Sunday Times

‘If psychological thrillers are your bag, then look no further than Fire Damage... Tense and hard to put down’ Closer

‘A haunting thriller’ Grazia

‘An absorbing and convincing thriller... An author who consistently delivers taut, believable and unsettlingly compelling novels’ Sunday Herald

‘Gripping’ Literary Review

‘Psychologist Jessie Flynn is set to become a major star in the world of crime fiction. She’s as fascinating and complex as the cases she solves. Fire Damage will leave you hungry for the next book in this superb series’ Kate Rhodes

'Jessie Flynn is an utterly compelling character, the icing on the cake of what is a refreshingly different and very gripping thriller. I really look forward to the next one’ Louise Voss

‘From the chilling opening scene where a traumatised child warns of The Shadowman, Fire Damage seizes you by the throat and doesn't let go. Complex, tense and utterly addictive, this is powerful, gutsy storytelling which plunges the reader deep into the darkest recesses of the human psyche’ Tammy Cohen
