Reviews

  • "I loved this book! Hugely atmospheric, exquisitely written and utterly gripping."

    Lucy Foley, author of The Hunting Party
  • "From the first page PINE casts a sense of slowly-rising unease that is completely compelling. It's both eerie and thrilling at once, and had me under its spell until the end."

    Sophie Mackintosh, author of THE WATER CURE
  • "If there's any doubt that the Gothic thriller is enjoying a boom, Francine Toon's debut should settle the matter. PINE, a moving study of memory and loss, is both spooky and tender; drenched in a sense of place and yet eerily timeless."

    Mick Herron
  • "Combines the Gothic sensibilities of Shirley Jackson with the psychologically astute suspense of Gillian Flynn ... will leave you gripped and transfixed."

    Sharlene Teo, author of Ponti
  • "Francine Toon's touching account of a flawed, yet tender, father-daughter relationship in PINE is all the more compelling against the starkly beautiful backdrop of the Scottish highlands."

    Livia Franchini, author of Shelf Life
