• Anna Bailey's debut is irresistible, a compelling and nuanced psychological thriller suffused with small town prejudice and dark family secrets.

  • With Tall Bones, Anna Bailey bursts onto the scene with a wonderfully haunting debut. Small-town intrigue, exquisitely drawn.

    JANE HARPER, author of The Dry and The Lost Man
  • An intricate and compelling thriller, beautifully nuanced and wonderfully claustrophobic. Brilliant.

    SJ WATSON, author of Before I Go to Sleep
  • 'Anna Bailey writes like a dream about teenage love and lust, the terror of knowledge and the claustrophobia of families and of small towns.Tall Bones is as brutal, as bittersweet, as tender and as tense as first love itself.'

    EMMA FLINT, author of Little Deaths
  • Tall Bones brilliantly conjures up the oppressive claustrophobia of the small town and I felt so strongly about some of the characters that I had to check the ending to make sure they were ok! Extremely well written... fantastic.

    HARRIET TYCE, author of Blood Orange
  • A terrific debut about guilt, secrets and complex family dynamics - the writing is vivid & assured: Anna Bailey is definitely one to watch.

    LUCY ATKINS, author of Magpie Lane
  • Brilliant! Could not put it down. It's utterly gripping and beautifully written.

  • Tall Bones is as atmospheric as it gets. Anna writes beautifully and it was so refreshing to experience a different voice - a stunning debut that delivers on every level. Reminded me of Jane Harper's The Dry.

    RENEE KNIGHT, author of Disclaimer
  • Smart and compassionate, full of poetry and rage and shy hopes and shredded dreams and missing girls and family secrets and the dark, shameful underbelly of small town life.

    TAMMY COHEN, author of Stop At Nothing
  • Chilling and compulsive. 'Tall Bones' is a dazzling debut.

    KATE HAMER, author of The Girl in the Red Coat
