• "Resembling Agatha Christie at her zaniest, this fascinating, ever- changing scenario is deftly and grippingly handled"

    Sunday Times
  • "With a terrifying dystopian core and a foreboding that lurks on every page, this is terrifying stuff."

  • "Agatha Christie meets George Orwell in journalist Avdic’s unsettling first novel ... Avdic not only constructs a fascinating and original plot but makes her imagined reality chillingly plausible."

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)
  • "An Orwellian debut novel that never lets up . . . A heady mix of And Then There Were None and The Hunger Games [and] a supremely competitive struggle for survival."

  • "Suspenseful . . . Like a Swedish Hunger Games for adults . . . A very promising debut."
