Reviews

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.
Mel Sherratt, author of <i>Taunting the Dead</i>
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.
Rachel Abbott, author of <i>Only the Innocent</i>
An enjoyably scary chiller
Sunday Mirror
An exciting story, very well told
Literary Review

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
Library Journal
The suspense...will have nighttime readers pushing their bedtime well past reasonable limits
