Review quote

Vastly entertaining Daily Mail This is an excellent emotional mystery which I found harder to put down every night! Woman's Own Setterfield proves a mistress of the craft of storytelling Guardian Beautifully written The Times A real treat ... like all the best first novels, this one seems to bulge with a lifetime's hoarded inspirations Time Out (Book of the Week) Compelling page-turner Woman and Home A remarkably compelling debut ... extraordinary, unusual and atmospheric ... The plot is razor sharp Scotland on Sunday Start reading this on the bus and, I swear, you won't only miss your stop, you might even lose the whole day Cosmopolitan Simply brilliant - I haven't enjoyed a first novel so much for absolutely ages Kate Mosse Deliciously chilling, compulsive reading TELEGRAPH & ARGUS
