Review

"Really great suspense novel. Kept me up most of the night. The alcoholic narrator is dead perfect." STEPHEN KING "The thriller scene will have to up its game if it's to match Hawkins this year" Observer "A complex and increasingly chilling tale courtesy of a number of first-person narratives that will wrong-foot even the most experienced of crime fiction readers" Irish Times "achieves a sinister poetry ... Hawkins keeps the nastiest twist for last" Financial Times "Hawkins' masterful deployment of unwittingly unreliable narration to evoke the aftershocks of abuse and trauma is a powerful way of exploring women's marginalization" Huffington Post
