MEDIA REVIEWS
"Incredible. Just incredible. Belinda Bauer is a genius." * Clare Mackintosh, author of I LET YOU GO *
"...all the texture and depth of a classic crime thriller... This increasingly taut thriller is page-clawing material." * Stuart Winter, Daily Express *
"...this wintery chiller is a fantastic take on the serial killer thriller." * Sunday Mirror *
"The Beautiful Dead will keep you up all night." * Shari Lapena, author of THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR *
"Excellent tension." * The Times *
"...a book you'll read in one go after making sure every door is locked." * Red *
"Over half a dozen novels, Belinda Bauer has staked a claim to the gruesome, spectacular and bizarre... trademark ingenuity." * Sunday Times *
"A masterclass in storytelling. Crime novels don't get much better than this. I loved it" * C L Taylor, author of THE ACCIDENT *
"Belinda Bauer is the connoisseur of crime novels." * ES Best, Evening Standard *
"...the formidably talented Belinda Bauer. From the award-winning Blacklands onwards, she has shown a plucky willingness to take the crime novel into completely unexpected territory, and a sure-fire grasp of how to unsettle the reader. Bauer aficionados need not hesitate; she's on typically scabrous form here." -- Barry Forshaw * FT *
"Oh my, this is a clever, chilling, and penetrating read...I simply couldn't put it down. With sharply spiked claws that hook into your mind and don't let go, The Beautiful Dead is a heart pounding and captivating read." -- Liz Robinson * Lovereading *
"Belinda Bauer used to be a screenwriter and it shows in the fast pace and mounting tension that makes The Beautiful Dead a book you'll read in one go with all the lights blazing after you've made sure every door is locked." * Sarra Manning *
"No one writes books like Belinda Bauer, who just gets better and better." * Sarah Hilary *
"...this all too believable thriller is fast-paced, taut and super scary" * The Sun on Sunday's Fabulous Magazine *
"Belinda Bauer is probably Britain's most original crime writer." * Crime Scene *
"...polished and breathtakingly tense, this novel of obsession and murder takes a firm grip from the start" * Woman & Home *
"I have read serial killer-yarns that are more frightening but few as entertaining or, in its low-key way, as moving." * Telegraph *
"excellent and disturbing crimer" * Sunday Sport *
