  • Samantha Downing is totally the real deal. Wry and dark and witty and clever. I didn't think she could outdo My Lovely Wife but I think this one tops it.

    Sarah Pinborough
  • Wonderfully dark and twisty. I raced through it, desperate to know how it would end

    BA Paris
  • Dark, sly and delicious...totally original - and totally compelling

    JP Delaney
  • I raced through this, and loved every twist and turn. Brilliant characterisation and ingenious plotting make it an absolute winner.

    Jill Mansell
  • I have loved all of the books by Samantha Downing, and this classroom thriller deserves an A+. Original, dark and highly addictive

    Alice Feeney
  • I'm a huge fan of Samantha Downing, who is masterful at creating diabolical characters and deliciously chilling plots. An absolutely terrific book!

    Sarah Pekkanen
  • Samantha Downing has achieved something so special in For Your Own Good. A story that is dark as night, sinister as hell, clever, twisting and downright fun

    Chris Whitaker
  • Samantha Downing serves up another cast of deliciously mendacious characters in an exclusive private school setting, where the deadly action drives a brilliantly tense, taut and twisty plot. I may never look at my coffee in the same way again

    Gilly Macmillan
  • A slick and chilling thriller, leading readers on a dark, sinuous journey through the halls of Belmont Academy-the type of place where you're never sure who to trust, or who to fear.

    Megan Miranda
  • Twistier than a corkscrew and utterly original, For Your Own Good hooked me from the first page with its dark humour and no-let-up suspense
