Review quote

"A slickly plotted, whip smart thriller - genuinely chilling and totally compulsive" * Sunday Mirror, Book of the Week * "[A] chilling psychological thriller...a tense, claustrophobic marriage of secrets, tequila shots and shotguns" * Sunday Express * "If the premise might be the sort that Agatha Christie would have toyed with had she been a 21st-century graduate, Ware's analysis of the power-games some women revel in - and the toxicity in the undertow of some female friendships - is more reminiscent of Sophie Hannah, Christobel Kent, or even Gillian Flynn and Harriet Lane" -- Patricia Nicol * Independent * "You won't be able to put down this creepy page-turner" * Closer * "Thrilling, gripping & well-written" * Metro, Book of the Week * "Toxic friendships, an isolated house, a dark snowy wood... Everyone's worst nightmare, and the perfect ingredients for this tense, terrifying novel" -- Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go
