'The buzz building around Catriona Ward's The Last House on Needless Street is real. I've read it and was blown away. It's a true nerve-shredder that keeps its mind-blowing secrets to the very end. Haven't read anything this exciting since Gone Girl.' - Stephen King
'The new face of literary dark fiction.' - Sarah Pinborough
'Books like this don't come around too often. An intelligent, well-written, stylish psychological thriller... with a perfectly structured plot arc and a perfectly satisfying whammy at the end. I would say I inhaled this in one, but I think I was too busy holding my breath throughout. Bravo.' - Joanne Harris
'A chilling and beautiful masterpiece of suspense, cunningly plotted and written with the elegant imagination of a Shirley Jackson or a Sarah Waters. I was completely enthralled.' - Joe Hill
'This is the best horror novel i have ever read! Even Shirley Jackson, her Majesty, would have to concede to this one.' - Natasha Pulley, author of The Watchmaker of Filigree Street
