Reviews

  • "Bolton never lets the tension drop. Indeed it is her ability to convey creeping dread that marks out her exceptional talent as a story-teller... For once, the description 'impossible to put down' is fully merited, for this is an absolute page-turner."

    Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail
  • "Bolton establishes a forbidding atmosphere . . . A slippery, devious narrative in which things are not always what they seem."

    Crime Scene
  • "Bolton is a gripping storyteller with fine, haunted characters"

    Peter James
  • "With Dead Woman Walking Sharon Bolton exceeds her own high standards of excellence. It grips from the start... The plots merge skilfully, with many splendid twists along the way."

    Marcel Berlins, The Times
  • "Dead Woman Walking once again signals what has made the novels of Sharon Bolton so successful: her clever amalgamation of two genres - the crepuscular, uncanny mystery . . . and the more traditional crime/thriller narrative."
