Grips to the very last page - a tense, twisted tale in which nothing is quite as it seems * T.M. Logan *
Cleverly written and full of twists and turns-- Jenny Quintana
Chilling and compassionate in equal measure, Grace is Gone is an emotionally-charged thriller that kept me reading long into the night. While undoubtedly a superior suspense novel, Elgar also excels in laying bare the often fragile bonds of supposedly close-knit communities. When the ending comes, be prepared to pick your jaw up off the floor-- Caz Frear
