MEDIA REVIEWS
Powerful ... moving ... convincing. * Daily Mail *
Bravo. An unsettling - and at times incredibly difficult - read describing too many people's everyday reality. * Anstey Harris, author of The Truths and Triumphs of Grace Atherton *
Horrifying in its reflection of reality for many women - and men. * Literary Review *
A clever title for a very thoughtful book about the complexities surrounding the victims of domestic abuse. * Irish Daily Mail *
How to Play Dead is an excellent story, something that will leave a deep impression on you... it has deeply affected me... This is a book that will make you stop and think. * New Books Magazine *
Hugely engrossing - a dark delight. * Catherine Ryan Howard, author of Rewind, on Perfect Ten *
A wildly entertaining and compelling debut. * Daily Mail, on Perfect Ten *
Fascinating. * Paula Daly, author of Open Your Eyes, on Perfect Ten *
Penetratingly sharp on the complexities of psychological abuse and the human heart, this compulsive, disturbing debut will be relished by fans of Gillian Flynn and Paula Daly. * Joanne Owen, LoveReading, on Perfect Ten *
