Review quote

It's very very tense, it's quite twisty and there are some really fantastic shockers in it ... I really really loved it ... t's an absolute must * Claire Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go * Keep You Close kept me up all night long. I couldn't stop reading until I reached the final, shattering pages. Skillfully constructed and beautifully realized, Keep You Close is the next must-read for fans of The Girl on the Train * Amanda Eyre Ward * You know a psychological thriller has done its job when you get to the last page and have an urge to instantly
return to the first, to work out just how you've been so thoroughly hoodwinked. In this case it's by elegant plotting, brilliant characterisation and a truly killer twist * Sunday Mirror * The success of Keep You Close lies in Whitehouse's perfect level of restraint ... Masterful ... An addictive psychological thriller. There's nothing more chilling that knowing you're intentionally being kept in the dark **** * Stylist, winner of 'Book Wars' * Whitehouse's previous novels have been singled out by Richard and Judy, and with Keep You Close the author confirms her reputation * Daily Mail * This engaging and smart tale gets right inside your head and stays there. So creepy * Heat * Whitehouse is a superb storyteller, whose sleight of hand and sly misdirections have you leaping to all the wrong conclusions from the outset * Independent * A tense psychological thriller * Marie Claire * Brilliantly written ... Amazing * Sun * A killer twist. A riveting, serpentine thriller that gripped me till the end * Woman & Home * Haunting from the very start ... You won't be able to put this down * Best * Fans of Gone Girl will love this tense, chilling thriller * Bella * An intense and tightly-worked story that makes for a dark and gripping read ***** * Lectito * Loved Gone Girl? This is the Brit version ... Warning: you won't want to put it down * Glamour on Before We Met * Whitehouse writes marvellously in an emotionally hypersensitive, lyrical, Maggie O'Farrell sort of way * Daily Mail, on The Bed I Made * A stunning piece of modern gothic. Gripping, accomplished and, ultimately, mesmerising, it represents the arrival of a major literary talent * John Connolly on The House at Midnight *
