'Catherine Jinks's latest work is a tense thriller that explores gaslighting, the different kinds of abuse people inflict upon one another and the way this abuse can ripple through generations...Shelter is an engrossing read that calls to be finished in one sitting.' * Books+Publishing * '[Jinks] is a masterful storyteller, able to easily carry the narrative exigences of plot and character regardless of genre...[she] knows how to dole out the tension, letting the suspense slacken and then ramping up the terror lest you become complacent for a few minutes.' * Guardian * 'Shelter is a propulsive thriller that is also distinctive in its plot, vision and style. Jinks has a painterly eye: her images, even in a pared-back thriller, are always arresting and acute...Masterfully developed.' * ABR *
