Review:

A book so brilliant that it compels you to stay up all night galloping through to the end (Daily Mail)

Immensely readable. The plot twist is both sinister and affecting, and so skillfully done that you remember why authors had plot twists in the first place (Guardian)

Immaculately calculated. Trevor's cunning is to lull us with inertia so that we are as startled as his characters when the faint air of menace turns into a tempest (Sunday Tribune)

Trevor is a master of both language and storytelling. this sinister, elegant, piercingly sad novel is surely one of the books of the year (Hilary Mantel Sunday Express)

A masterpiece. You read and are dazzled. It has one of the most memorable and convincing, most sinister and terrifying of characters created in the modern novel (Susan Hill)

Masterly in its tension (Irish Times)

From the Back Cover:

Winner of the Whitbread Book of the Year Award and the Sunday Express Book of the Year Award

'You're beautiful.' Johnny told her. So, full of hope, seventeen year-old Felicia crosses the Irish Sea to England to find her lover and tell him she is pregnant. Desperately searching for Johnny in the bleak post-industrial Midlands, she is instead found by Mr Hilditch, a strange and lonely man, a collector and befriender of homeless young girls . . .
