Flap copy

Patty turns to leave and catches sight of herself in the mirror. Blood is smeared on her glasses and arcs over her cheek, sweeping across her right eye. She draws back from her reflection, horrified for a second and then... exhilarated. She would like to keep it forever, a red badge of courage.

From somewhere far-off she hears Jim ask her: ‘Patty, what would your superpower be?’ She whispers into the dark. ‘To bring back the dead.’

Review quote

THE LAST WINTER OF DANI LANCING marks the debut of a major new voice in crime fiction. P.D. Viner has crafted a deeply textured psychological thriller that reveals, layer by tragic layer, the damage wrought by a single act of homicide. A remarkably assured debut and a thrilling read. Look forward to more -- Michael Harvey An entertaining thriller, but also a moving examination of loss, memory and morality * Sunday Mirror * Genuinely intriguing -- Laura Wilson * The Guardian * An exciting thriller that is also deeply moving. A hugely impressive debut -- Mark Billingham Brilliant! P.D. Viner's writing is audacious, clever and bold. I think he'll go far -- Sophie Hannah
