  • A terrifyingly tense thriller that takes you to the darkest places of the human heart

    Elly Griffiths, The Locked Room
  • I loved this. A great police procedural centred on a boarding school with a potent mix of privilege and the fall out from toxic parenting, building up to a gripping, breathless denouement. Great stuff

    Harriet Tyce, author of Blood Orange
  • Another totally thrilling page-turner. Masterful writing about teenage insecurity again, with a plot that twists and turns in to such a dramatic conclusion. Also so filmic, I could see every scene - surely has to be adapted!

    Araminta Hall, author of Hidden Depths
  • Lelic's best yet. As beautifully crafted as ever, and builds layer upon layer of tension

    Cara Hunter, author of The Whole Truth
  • Dual timelines unravel the truth behind a deadly game in a sinister boarding school & the present day hunt for a killer. Tense, full of misdirection & beautifully written

    Gilly Macmillan, author of The Nanny
  • I finished reading The Hiding Place by Simon Lelic yesterday. It opens with a chilling first page and the tone is set for a dark and disturbing thriller right up to the heart-stopping finale. A must read

    Michael Wood
  • 'Skilful and compelling'

  • 'An intricate and powerful thriller'
