[One] of the great unmissables of the genre - intelligent, classy and with a wonderfully gothic imagination * The Times * Sophie Hannah has a poet's eye, and she creates characters and settings of closely observed complexity in her psychological mysteries * Daily Telegraph * Hannah takes domestic scenarios, adds disquieting touches and turns up the suspense until you're checking under the bed for murders . . . it's this real-life research that helps make it so convincing - and so unsettling * Independent * Enthrallingly complex . . . A multi-stranded narrative that grips * Sunday Times * The genius of Hannah's domestic thrillers - along with the twistiest plots known to woman - is that she creates ordinary people whose psychological quirks make them as monstrous as any serial killer * Guardian * A fabulously creepy standalone * Bookseller * A beguiling and intricate standalone crime thriller * Daily Mail * The twisting plot is not only enthralling but uniquely challenging * Daily Express * A leading writer of psychological suspense . . . her books are so distinctive that they deserve to be placed in a separate sub-genre of their own . . . As ever, Hannah excels * Spectator * Another massively intriguing premise from Hannah, with plot threads that spin out in all kinds of unusual and surprising directions . . . A hugely confident, beautifully written and bold mystery * Heat * It is brilliantly constructed, and it had me, screaming, on the edge of my chair * Readers Digest * Do not think you have worked out where the plot is going and how it is going to end.
