Review quote

When it comes to ingenious plots that twist and turn like a fairground rollercoaster few writers can match Sophie Hannah Daily Express This book's triumph is that it is not just a perfectly executed psychological thriller, but a pertinent meditation on society itself Guardian A remarkable novel, and an adventure to read ... a first-class whodunnit that will keep you reading long into the night Scotsman Hannah is a master of intense psychological thrillers ... Full of twists and turns, and terrifying, too Heat Enthrallingly Complex Sunday Times Hannah takes domestic scenarios, adds disquieting touches and turns up the suspense until you're checking under the bed for murders ... it's this real-life research that helps make it so convincing - and so unsettling Independent Sophie Hannah has quickly established herself as a doyenne of the 'home horror' school of psychological tension, taking domestic situations and wringing from them dark, gothic thrills ... Combining probability theory, poetry and murder, this is a densely plotted suspenser with a coded puzzle that would grace a Golden Age mystery Financial Timesshow more
