Waterstones Says

Set on a remote farm and filled with lingering dread, The Last Thing to Burn is a chilling depiction of an obsessively controlling relationship driven to its breaking point.

He is her husband. She is his captive.

Her husband calls her Jane. That is not her name.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is a brilliant, chilling depiction of life on the very edges of society. I read it in one sitting, and lived every second of the book with the characters. Compelling, horrifying and gripping, and written with such empathy and control, it's probably the best thing I will read this year' - Jane Casey

'Misery meets Room ... a triumph' - Marian Keyes

'Ratchets up the tension to the point where I had to check my pulse' - Liz Nugent

“This book is a triumph.”

This is the story of a woman whom we will not call Jane. She is a woman in the most awful circumstances and the story Will Dean tells is told entirely in her voice. It is a story that I did not want to hear, but could... More

“You must read this phenomenal novel!”

Will Dean’s “The Last Thing to Burn”, quite frankly, is phenomenal. Painfully brutal, distressingly tense and viscerally affecting. This will take 2021 by storm.

“His Best Yet!”

Thank you for the early review copy, having read Will's three previous books I was a little surprised to see that this was a standalone, not from the series we know and love...
This always worries me... how will... More
