    Sunday Times (Culture)
  • "Bauer has shifted the boundaries of what makes a truly gripping, terrifying thriller"

    Daily Mirror
  • "Bauer takes astonishing risks but - like a brilliant ski-jumper - arcs down to the perfect landing"

  • "She can do tragic brilliantly and she can do grim, but every now and then humour breaks into the tale - and she does that almost best of all"

  • "I would press this one on anyone who loves Kate Atkinson, Bauer really is that good"
