Review quote

There are so many psychological thrillers around right now - but this is one of the best. * Sun * Prepare to totally forget about your family as you become immersed in someone else's. * Stellar Magazine * The narrative dips back and forth with various points of view from stunningly drawn characters and I devoured it in one long sitting. Take this to the beach, or indeed anywhere - I promise you won't regret it. * Daily Mail * Something of a moral fable about modern relationships, this is a smart and enjoyable story * Sunday Mirror * An emotionally intelligent, brilliantly plotted and beautifully written examination of a very modern family that will keep you gripped until the end. * Daily Mail, Books of the Year *
