The Half Burnt House is Alex North at his best - a writer who can terrify you on one page and break your heart on the next
*Steve Cavanagh, bestselling author of Thirteen*

Endlessly intriguing
*New York Times*

So dark and so twisty

One of those books that made me wish I'd written it. North wields suspense like a blade. Breath-taking and terrifying
*Helen Fields*

North handles the complicated plot with skill while bringing his troubled characters to life amid the horror.

North's poetic way with even the most grotesque of situations is always a joy. The Half Burnt House is his best yet. I love it.
*Alex Marwood*

Dark, gripping, and twisty
*Claire McGowan*

Thrilling, moving and utterly gripping; The Half Burnt House is a triumph
*William Ryan*

A masterfully creepy, atmospheric rush of a read that will linger with you long after you've finished the last page
*Neil Broadfoot*

Complex, tense and atmospheric
*Woman's Weekly*

Deeply complex and carefully crafted, this novel is a thrilling question mark all the way to the end, and it puts North's storytelling skills on full display . . . the tension mounts with almost every single chapter... his best so far, a superb addition to his already impressive oeuvre

A cut-throat thriller
*Woman's Own*

Alex North's best book yet. It's as darkly disturbing as The Whisper Man, and as viciously twisty as The Shadow Friend. But this time there's a premise that will break your heart even as it chills you to the very marrow. Nobody in dark fiction writes family relationships - guilt, fear, loss, and ultimately love - like North, and this is an unputdownable thriller
*Derek Farrell*

Everything in this story is connected in ways the reader can't begin to imagine until a series of stunning parallels and revelations are disclosed. Wait for it!
*Booklist, STARRED*

North's latest thriller does not disappoint, weaving an intriguing cast of characters across multiple time periods into a story rich with layers and plot twists and perfectly suspenseful pacing ... A delightfully bone-chilling tale
*Kirkus Reviews*

Praise for Alex North

As terrifying as a great horror novel, as unpredictable as the best type of crime novel and above all beautifully written...a writer who is an absolute master of his craft
*Jane Casey*

This is absorbing, headlong reading, a play on classic horror with an inventiveness of its own
*New York Times*

Hugely atmospheric and deliciously creepy
*Alex Michaelides*
