Trust me - Cummins is a keeper -- Lee Child
A riveting read that will keep you up at night * Hello! *
Rattle was one of the most chilling and gripping thrillers released last year. The Collector [. . .] is even more creepy and unsettling with tension slowly ramped up to build to a sensational finale that will make you gasp. * Daily Express *
Cummins has a gift for imbuing the everyday with menace. Despite the picture postcard coastal setting, the seam of evil that runs through this story is totally convincing. * Sunday Mirror *
If you haven't read Fiona Cummins and you're a Mo Hayder fan, make sure you read her first book and then her second. With the lights on -- Emma Flint
Totally, totally brilliant. Even more twisted than the first one. A whole another level of serial killer awesome -- Lisa Hall
Spine-chilling and brilliant, beautifully written, creepily clever and utterly absorbing - just like Rattle -- Karen Hamilton
Chilling, superbly constructed, taut, evocative, her prose sings as she holds you tight in her grip and relentlessly ratchets up the tension. Compelling. -- Sarah Vaughan, author of the highly anticipated Anatomy of a Scandal
The Collector is sensational. Fiona Cummins is a twisted genius writing with a silver pen. This is crime at its grisly and glorious best -- Amanda Jennings
Every bit as compelling as Rattle, with a dark, suspenseful plotline that had me holding my breath. The characters are so well drawn: the Collector himself is terrifying and the vulnerability of his victims really draws the reader in, making you yearn for justice and wonder how the nightmare will ever end . . . Brilliant, scary, creepy read -- Debbie Howells
An excellent read -- Martina Cole on Rattle
It's a rare debut that has this much polish. Harrowing and horrifying, head and shoulders above most of the competition -- Val McDermid on Rattle
Made a paranoid hypochondriac for a few days! -- Sophie Hannah on Rattle
Dark, stylish and scarily plausible -- Joseph Knox on Rattle
Seriously creepy and very well written. One that'll have you double checking your doors are locked at night -- Ali Land on Rattle
A creepy crime debut with shades of Babadook about it . . . I think it will be huge -- Sarah Hilary on Rattle
Highly recommended for fans of Karin Slaughter and those who love well-written psychological thrillers. * Library Journal *

What a spine-tingling and twisted read! I LOVED IT. If you thought 'Rattle' was dark 'The collector' is darker. Just when you thought the bone collector couldn't get more twisted he just did!... More
“Good new character!”
Loved the addition of the new 'bad' character!!
I can totally see a new series unfolding in which he could be the main man!
Looking forward to reading your future novels.

Thank you to my lovely bookseller friend who gave me a copy of this and told me I'd love it... She was correct!
I haven't read the first book in the series, Rattle, but that did not detract from the sheer... More
