• "Excellent"

    Independent on Sunday
  • "The story twists in a subtle way and Alan Durant disguises the plot well. I would give this book 8/10 and recommend it to anyone who likes mystery/thrillers."

    Kitty Lai, St Joseph's High School, The South Wales Argus
  • "The story makes a great read for its brilliant portrayal of troubled step-relationships"

    Northern Echo
  • "A haunting, gripping novel, part murder mystery, part psychological thriller."

    The Northern Echo
  • "A gritty, intense story full of pent-up emotion, fear and an overarching sense of something ominous and out of reach."
