Reviews

"Really great suspense novel. Kept me up most of the night. The alcoholic narrator is dead perfect." * STEPHEN KING * "The thriller scene will have to up its game if it's to match Hawkins this year" * Observer * "A complex and increasingly chilling tale courtesy of a number of first-person narratives that will wrong-foot even the most experienced of crime fiction readers" * Irish Times * "achieves a sinister poetry . . . Hawkins keeps the nastiest twist for last" * Financial Times * "Hawkins' masterful deployment of unwittingly unreliable narration to evoke the aftershocks of abuse and trauma is a powerful way of exploring women's marginalization" * Huffington Post *

Fantastic little thriller. It was very hard to put it down and, finally, I had to cover over half of the book in the final reading.

Excellent! Read it in one evening. Enjoyed the authors unusual point of view allowing each chapter to explore a character's thoughts and feelings as well as their actions which could not happen if written from one characters perspective. Continuity is maintained by the main character appearing in each chapter. The pace keeps the reader engaged and leads to the final plot twist.

Saw the movie before I read the book. Found the movie a little slow for first half and then was great. Thoroughly enjoyed the book. Had short sharp chapters which made you want to continue reading. Great pace. Would certainly recommend the book.
