You'll be immersed in this twisted, delightful tale, which leaves you guessing just whose version of events is the truth
A tense psychological drama that will have you feverishly turning the pages as you try to figure out who can be trusted, right to the very last page with its brilliantly chilling ending.
With a delicious sense of creeping menace, an uncertainty about where truth lies and with mounting claustrophobic tension, Marianne Kavanagh's novel offers a pleasingly dark take on the much-vaunted attractions of English village life.
A dark, disturbing slow burn of a novel that I consumed with an increasing and justified sense of foreboding.
So subtly done, and well achieved, and horrifyingly, hilariously believable - just the blackest of delights.
The tension doesn't let up - taut all the way through with a creeping sense of horror as it unfolds, and the end is positively chilling.
Dark and unpredictable, yet scarily plausible, domestic noir
Twisty, dark and clever. What a brilliantly realised character Sara is.
There's such a powerful mood of unease about DISTURBANCE. I read through my fingers, praying my suspicions weren't true...
I raced through it. Dark, tense and very twisty.
Very disturbing, dark and satisfyingly twisty.
This is a tense, troublesome read that makes you think about what really goes on behind closed doors.
This is a dark novel, which will immerse you immediately, and leave you guessing just whose version of events is the truth. Twisted and delightful.
A massively enjoyable book - creepy, funny, surprising and absolutely unputdownable... My only wish is that I hadn't finished it so quickly.
