MEDIA REVIEWS
The Stolen Child captivated me, terrified me and left me deeply moved. * Holly Seddon *
Gut-wrenching... The Stolen Child succeeds as both a fast-paced thriller and a haunting tale of a fragile family. * Peter Swanson *
Beautiful terse writing and the build to the shattering climax is palpable. * Peter James *
This story grips to the very last page as it explores every parent's worst nightmare... I couldn't put it down. * Amanda Jennings *
A gripping and totally unpredictable story * Daily Mail *
In this chilling story of fragile family bonds and obsessive love the unforgiving West Yorkshire landscape becomes a character in its own right through Sanjida's vivid and atmospheric prose. Just wonderful. * Nuala Elwood *
Haunting and real... Sanjida Kay deftly explores dangerous, unthinkable questions as a mother fights an invisible force for the adopted child who is her own. * Julia Heaberlin *
An excellent piece of work [that] triumphs both as an edge-of-the-seat whodunnit and a psychologically perceptive study of the impact of grief, loss and alienation. * Irish Sunday Independent *
Utterly absorbing * Crimereview.co.uk *
