I felt pure dread reading this book. Enjoyable, exquisite dread. A great read. There are so many layers and twists to this story and they are revealed in the most frustrating, masterful way. - Sarah Bailey, author of The Dark Lake Call Me Evie is razor sharp, claustrophobic and unputdownable. No character is above suspicion in this dry-mouthed, wide-eyed rollercoaster chase to the final page. This is the finest of literary thrillers from a remarkable new talent. - Susi Fox, bestselling author of Mine A superbly claustrophobic mind-f**k - I absolutely had to know who 'Evie' was and what had happened! - Angela Meyer, author of A Superior Spectre Call Me Evie is a one-sitting kind of book, ideal for readers who enjoy fast-paced thrillers that keep them guessing. - Books + Publishing It's a tight, compulsive, beautifully written thriller with echoes of Gillian Flynn, with characters that keep you guessing and a plot that keeps you turning the page. - Christian White, author of The Nowhere Child Literary suspense as dark and fresh as midnight in winter, with a merciless twist-of-the-knife finale. One of the most striking debuts I've read in years and years. - AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window Almost nothing will turn out as it initially appears in this devastating novel of psychological suspense. - Publishers Weekly Pick this one up when you have plenty of time as you're unlikely to put it down after a few pages. - Daily Telegraph
