`A fab, page turning thriller!' Jacqui Rose
`I absolutely loved this well written,riveting debut mystery and would have happily given it far more than five stars.I really hope this is the first book in a new series and look forward to reading more books by this author in the future.' Goodreads reviewer
`Hold My Hand is an absolutely brilliant debut novel from a very talented author. It has an elaborate plot which is both convincing and exciting, a number of dubious suspects, twists and turns, an unbelievably scary and thrilling conclusion, in fact everything I want from a crime thriller. I love the character of Jo Masters who's feisty and has a life outside the police force, and I want to read more of her. It was impossible for me to stop reading, and when I really had to I found myself thinking about it. I can wholeheartedly recommend this novel which could well be a bestseller for 2018!'
