    DescriptionMulholland Books presents...CROSSBONES YARD Ray and Marie Benson killed 13 women before they were caught, tried and imprisoned. Five of their victims were never found. Six years later, psychologist Alice Quentin discovers a woman's body on the waste ground at Crossbones Yard. The wounds are horrifyingly similar to the Bensons' signature style. But who would want to copy their crimes? When Alice is called in to consult, her first instinct is to say no. She wants to focus on treating her patients, not analysing the mind of a murderer. But the body at Crossbones Yard is just the start, and the killer may already be closer than Alice knows.

    Review quote
    There are some great twists, turns and surprises in this debut novel. Sun Rhodes is a poet whose linguistic precision is very much in evidence throughout the novel and Alice is a vividly realised protagonist whose complex and harrowing history rivals the central crime storyline; readers will care as much about Alice as they do about identifying the murderer and solving the mystery. Sophie Hannah, Sunday Express Like Nicci French, Kate Rhodes excels at character, pace and sense of place. Alice Quentin is compelling and completely convincing: I look forward to following the series. Erin Kelly A pacy psychological thriller that makes good use of its London setting. Laura Wilson, Guardian An utterly brilliant, exhilarating read and I devoured every page. The characters, especially the bold and brave heroine, are touchingly real. Now that I've finished it I feel bereft, the only consolation being that it's the start of an Alice Quentin series and although I have a while to wait, I will get to read more. -- Elizabeth Haynes, author of Into the Darkest Corner, Amazon Rising Star 2011 and TV Book Club pick. A very impressive debut. After a powerful opening, Kate's vivid, pacy writing style swept me into the story. Alice is a very strong character, and the well-constructed, complex plot kept me intrigued right up to the end Aline Templeton A fresh voice in crime fiction, bringing an intriguing and appealing central character in the form of psychologist Alice Quentin - who I expect to be with us for a long time to come. I loved the way the Kate Rhodes uses all the senses to draw the reader into her compelling fictional world. Stephen Booth An atmospheric, smart, often terrifying read. Louise Penny
