Review quote

"Scarily believable" * Essentials * "Fiendishly addictive as well as perceptive about guilt and social class" * Guardian * "A pacy psychological thriller that perfectly captures the voice of a stressed-out working mum" * Sunday Mirror * "With cracking dialogue, compelling characters and a page-turning plot...this is a truly promising debut" * Daily Mail * "With cracking dialogue, compelling characters and a page-turning plot about every mother's worst nightmare - the abduction of a teenage daughter - this is a truly promising debut by Daly. She writes with a singular voice and a fierce passion that roars off the page, while also displaying a visceral understanding of the betrayals and humiliations of domestic life ... With a sharp, double-twist ending, it announces Daly as a potential star, and one with the courage to take risks" -- Geoffrey Wansell * Daily Mail *show more
