Review:

'Chilling first novel . . . absorbing and genuinely surprising'
Guardian



One of the best thrillers you'll read this year (Cosmopolitan)

Absorbing and genuinely surprising (Guardian)

'An absorbing, clammy novel full of moody frissons, desperate longings and the tragedy of lives gone wrong'
Marcel Berlins, The Times



Well written, intelligent and chilling (Manchester Evening News)

'A compelling psychological thriller with echoes of Barbara Vine and Minette Walters. Well written, intelligent and chilling, it demonstrates an unusual assurance in a first novel. Convincing on every level, this is a fascinating debut which delivers plenty and promises more'
Val McDermid, Manchester Evening News



'Gripping, occasionally ghoulish, psychological thriller . . . Cracking pace and cleverly plotted'
Daily Telegraph



A murky and compelling story

Adept at handling the drip-drip of information, it was smoothly, efficiently tricky (Daily Express)

'Complex and compelling. This is an unbelievably good debut novel'
Coventry Evening Telegraph
