MEDIA REVIEWS
A tale brimming with excitement, mystery and vitality ... The story unfolds at a thriller's pace * The Times *
Hill is a writer with the courage of her convictions who knows that there are few things more enjoyable than the inexplicable and eerie, conveyed within an accomplished and solidly reassuring framework * Independent *

A plain but effective style that chills the blood * Guardian *
