    Mary Fitzgerald, Observer
  • "I stayed up gone two in the morning and by the end there were tears in my eyes"

  • "Susan Hill's crime novels are getting better and better... The main plot is straightforward enough - who is the killer and will he be caught? - but the narrative is so streamlined and effective that it races beautifully along until it smacks against the buffers of an unexpected but entirely convincing ending"

  • "Delicious agony...The suspense-building techniques of Alfred Hitchcock have long been locked into Susan Hill's literary apparatus and they are given full rein here"
