Reviews

  • "Feted as this year’s The Girl on the Train"

    OBSERVER
  • "The big thriller of the year"

    STYLIST
  • "The ultimate psychological thriller. Barton carefully unspools this dark, intimate tale of a terrible crime, a stifling marriage, and the lies spouses tell not just to each other, but to themselves in order to make it through. The ending totally blew me away."

    LISA GARDNER
  • "The most buzzed about book of 2016"

    HEAT
  • "Stunning from start to finish. I devoured it in one sitting. The best book I've read this year. If you liked GONE GIRL, you'll love this. Fiona Barton is a major new talent."

    M J Arlidge
  • "An unsettling, compulsive tale"

    GOOD HOUSEKEEPING
  • "Dark, compelling and utterly unputdownable. My book of the year so far"

    C. L. Taylor, author of THE ACCIDENT and THE LIE
  • "A book you’ll drop everything to whip through"

    GLAMOUR
  • "A cleverly conceived, interesting novel"

    LITERARY REVIEW
