THE TOP FIVE KINDLE BESTSELLER

The USA Today bestseller

'AMAZING. I read it in one go. I was totally hooked.' MARIAN KEYES

'Utterly addictive. Compulsive, twisty, tense.' CLAIRE DOUGLAS, author of Local Girl Missing

Her name was Rose. You watched her die. And her death has created a vacancy.

When Emily lets a stranger step out in front of her, she never imagines that split second will change her life. But after Emily watches a car plough into the young mother - killing her instantly - she finds herself unable to move on.

And then she makes a decision she can never take back.

Because Rose had everything Emily had ever dreamed of. A beautiful, loving family, a great job and a stunning home. And now Rose's husband misses his wife, and their son needs a mother. Why couldn't Emily fill that space?

But as Emily is about to discover, no one's life is perfect ... and not everything is as it seems.

'A powerful and emotional psychological thriller that will keep you guessing and leave you breathless.' C. L. TAYLOR, author of The Fear

'A psychological thriller with a heart: taut, emotionally challenging and unlike so many thrillers, each twist and turn is here because it deserves to be and not for the sake of it.' JOHN MARRS, author of THE ONE

'A powerful and emotional psychological thriller that will keep you guessing and leave you breathless.' C. L. TAYLOR, author of The Fear

'Utterly addictive! Literally couldn't put it down all day! Compulsive, twisty, tense. And LOVED the ending.' CLAIRE DOUGLAS, author of Local Girl Missing

'I devoured it in a couple of days. Claire Allan managed to maintain an unsettling sense of unease that started at the very beginning and didn't let up at all.' ELLE CROFT

'SUCH a good read! It made me feel so uncomfortable, but I still kept gobbling up the pages.' LISA HALL

'A superior psychological thriller with an intriguing set-up, a flawed heroine and some great twists. Recommended!' MARK EDWARDS

'A psychological thriller with a heart: taut, emotionally challenging and unlike so many thrillers, each twist and turn is here because it deserves to be and not for the sake of it.' JOHN MARRS

'An intriguing and menacing page turner.' MEL SHERRATT

'The depth of characterisation and its fast pace is what makes HER NAME WAS ROSE stand out as a thriller. It had me hooked until the end.' ELISABETH CARPENTER

'Mesmerizing to the point of complete distraction. I was totally engrossed in this book' AMANDA ROBSON, author of Obsession

'Claire Allan's transition into crime writing is seamless. Her Name was Rose brings all the emotional heft and depth of characterisation her readers would expect, but with a taut, menacing plot line. A compulsively thrilling read from start to finish.' BRIAN MCGILLOWAY, New York Times and Kindle #1 bestseller

'I loved it. The plot is twisty and the issues being dealt with here are big scale but told beautifully through Emily. Her envy and confusion is so real as to be palpable and of course, all too relatable. Creepy and weepy.' NIKI MACKAY

Three and a half stars!
This book was quite intriguing and took a different path to the one I thought it was going to take. Emily lets a young woman, Rose, go ahead of her out of a lift and for this reason Emily... More

“Well written but lacked much tension”

I felt very ambivalent about this book and found it difficult to review. After a dramatic start it seemed to take a while to rack up any tension again, and when it did it felt like a fairly standard thriller as... More
