  • “A well crafted read and I was amazed it was a debut novel!  It has an intensity to it, beautifully written and something that is totally believable!” (CrimeBookJunkie)
  • “Tense and intriguing!” (Rae Reads)

In the interests of balance, the book has also been described as “gloomy”, “dreary” and “never really goes anywhere”. They could just as well be describing me. You can’t win them all.
