Review quote

'A thoughtful, well-observed story ... It reminded me of Kate Atkinson' Scott Pack. 'Tense and gripping ... On the edge of my seat? No way - I was cowering under it' Shotsmag. 'Skilfully evokes the era and slow-moving childhood summers ... A study of memory and guilt with several twists' Guardian. 'This is a haunting novel about loss and reconciliation, driven by a simple but clever plot' The Sunday Times. 'This book has a clever mystery plot - but its excellence is in the characters, all credible and memorable, and in its setting in a real West London street, exactly described' Literary Review. 'A cerebral thriller ... evokes chills from more than just the frigid winter nights ... Twists and surprises abound' Forward Reviews more
