The perfect thriller. I quite literally couldn't put it down
A. J. Finn, bestselling author of THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW
Smart, sophisticated suspense - a very fine novel by any standard
An excellent, slow-burning psychological thriller; sharp, clever and with a whammy that genuinely took me by surprise
I read it in two nights and savoured every luscious word, every grim encounter, every startling twist
One of the best psychological thrillers I have ever read . . . with an ending that is destined to go down as one of the most shocking, mind-blowing twists in recent memory
Absolutely brilliant . . . I read it in a state of intense, breathless excitement
The definition of a page turner. The twist comes as hard and fast as a slap across the face.
JOHN MARRS, bestselling author of THE GOOD SAMARITAN
One of the best thrillers I've read this year. Masterfully plotted and brilliantly paced by a writer at the top of his game
