Review quote

Reviews are continuing to come through for this. 'Not to be missed.'DAILY MIRROR 'an engrossing psychological, literary novel...' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'This is a finely wrought novel that works as a mystery and as a race against time to find a vulnerable young woman. Most of all it is a sensitive and sometimesdisturbing examination of how we face, or don't, the realities of mental illness.'SUNDAY MERCURY, BIRMINGHAM 'Few would deny that Evan Hunter is one of the word's best writers. His easy style, his ability to make the most mundane details interesting and his psychiatrist-like ability to tease ou the last shred from a character's personality have made him a star author for half a century.', September 2003 Review in HUDDERSFIELD DAILY EXAMINER
