A pacy psychological thriller that makes good use of its London setting
Alice is a vividly realised protagonist whose complex and harrowing history rivals the central crime storyline
An utterly brilliant, exhilarating read
Praise for Kate Rhodes
One of those books that leaves the reader wanting more. The life of each character is so vividly painted that even those in minor roles become intriguing, and the pace never slackens from the first page to the last.
Quentin is one of a cast of really believable and entertaining characters and both the plot and the writing keep one thoroughly engaged throughout
Atmospheric and suspenseful
A terrific new heroine on the block
An enjoyably scary chiller
Fans of the first two books starring Quentin won't be disappointed; the mood is rife with fear and sexual tension as Quentin and Burns attempt to catch a child killer before he strikes again
The suspense...will have nighttime readers pushing their bedtime well past reasonable limits
Kate Rhodes is the queen of atmospheric suspense. Her murder mysteries are extremely creepy and intriguing.
Great twists, turns and surprises
One of the most absorbing books I've read in a long time. Alice Quentin is such a warm character - unique, yet very real. I loved the sense of menace too - perfectly thrilling.
A fast-moving, entertaining mix of sex, suspense and serial killings
An exciting story, very well told
Like Nicci French, Kate Rhodes excels at character, pace and sense of place
