  • Pearse's The Sanatorium will keep you checking over your shoulder. This spine-tingling, atmospheric thriller has it all: an eerie Alpine setting, sharp prose, and twists you'll never see coming. A must-read.

    Richard Osman, internationally bestselling author of THE THURSDAY MURDER CLUB
  • Dark, suspenseful and downright chilling, The Sanatorium is a triumph. Vividly set against the backdrop of the Swiss Alps, it had me on the edge of my seat from the first page. Pearse's writing is sublime. What a talent! Pearse has a big future ahead of her.

    Sally Hepworth, author of THE MOTHER-IN-LAW
  • The Sanatorium is an absolutely splendid Gothic thriller - gracious in its nods to the classic locked-room mystery, yet bold enough to burst out of that room through the window. Pearse writes prose fresh and crisp as Swiss Alp powder, and her characters fascinate even as their numbers dwindle.

    A. J. Finn, bestselling author of THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW
  • The Sanatorium is definitely a debut novel to watch out for. Wow, what a chilling read! One of the creepiest thrillers I've ever read. So atmospheric, clever and compulsive. LOVED it!

    Claire Douglas, author of LOCAL GIRL MISSING
  • Creepy, deeply claustrophobic, mind-numbing, teasing, twists and turns galore, this book is a towering example of a masterful hand at work. If only Hitchcock were still around to film it.

    David Baldacci, internationally bestselling author of MERCY
  • A seriously sinister setting, an incredible sense of place and a twisty, unpredictable plot combine to make an utterly terrifying read. I loved it.

    Allie Reynolds, author of SHIVER
  • A tense and seriously chilling page-turner.

    Emma Curtis, author of KEEP HER QUIET
  • What an incredible debut novel. Clever, creepy and utterly compelling.

    Samantha King, author of THE CHOICE
  • I loved it - such a wonderful sense of location, and the tension is knife edge-sharp. I was up at 5.30 in the mornings to read it.

    Michelle Adams, author of THE SISTER
  • A superb debut offering an astonishingly creepy and isolated backdrop, great characters, tension and twists. Hugely atmospheric with enough menace to keep you looking over your shoulder!

    Sam Carrington, author of BAD SISTER
