"This page-turning thrilller has a sympathetic and utterly believable heroine, but it's also an examination of how women's bodies are treated, in life and in fiction." * The Bookseller *
"Powerful and moving, I read The Body Lies in one sitting. As a thriller, it grips and shocks: as a portrayal of the way women move through the world, and the way men see them, it has never been more timely. Absolutely stunning." * ERIN KELLY, bestselling author of HE SAID/SHE SAID *
"A story of female response to male threat, boosted by questions of literary expression... Baker's fans will enjoy the crisp descriptive writing and insightful nuances" * Kirkus Reviews *
"All too plausible, Baker's powerful tale is at times heart-rending to read-and impossible to put down." * Publishers Weekly *
