Unputdownable * The Sun on Sunday * It's not often that a book about murder mingled with domestic and sexual violence has you howling with laughter, but Moriarty pulls it off here ... Her ironic turn of phrases infuses even poignant moments with humour. Blending romance, comedy and mystery, this is a wonderful book - full of brains, guts and heart * The Sunday Mirror * It all reads terrifyingly real, with the viciousness of the women at the school gates and the hell they can make each others' lives. It's a fine book * The Sunday Sport * Moriarty is happy to thread a thin line between mummy lit and fluffy thriller.
