Reviews

  • "Surprise, of course, is the most potent aspect of suspense. And Belinda Bauer knows exactly how to manipulate that element, right until the very end. What's more, she's shown, not just how to keep surprise bubbling explosively away, but to do it with extraordinary dexterity, maturity and feeling"

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

    Independent
  • "Compelling... Bauer blends a psychological crime story with a darkly humorous narrative... I can't wait for the next one!"

    Bookseller (Booksellers' Choice)
  • "Belinda Bauer's third book represents a remarkable achievement: almost a return to the good old Victorian triple-decker novel of suspense, but created with a deftness that allows each book to stand alone."

    Independent
  • "She's a thriller queen... The woman most likely to lead the fightback against the Scandinavian crime-wave"
