Review quote

"A Fatal Attraction for the digital age, but with a crucial twist ... Watson is a master at turning the screw." Evening Standard "A gripping read - deftly plotted, with convincing characters and an unsettling premise that builds to a truly disturbing conclusion. Second Life is ample proof that Watson is no mere one-hit wonder." Independent "A gripping, contemporary thriller, this is the sort of thing you'll plough through in a hurried weekend of page turning." ShortList Magazine "A fierce, captivating portrait. Julia's disintegration is heartbreaking and underlines what a formidable presence Watson has as a writer: a star is confirmed." Daily Mailshow more
