An unreliable narrator makes this enchanting jazz-age thriller a clever and addictive debut * Guardian *
A sleek story of dangerous shenanigans, bootleggers and unreliable narrators, set in the unflappable Jazz Age * Marie Claire *
The real thrill of this book is that nothing is what it seems. Not least Rose, who reveals herself to be the most untrustworthy of storytellers . . . the book turns into an elegantly controlled emotional thriller with so many twists and turns that there is every chance you will have to read it in one sitting. Hard to believe this is Rindell's first book - and I'm already looking forward to her second * Daily Mail *
Elegant, edgy, stylish . . . I was reminded of Zoe Heller's classic Notes on a Scandal - but with dollops of Sex and the City for welcome Manhattan glamour * Sunday Independent *
A mysterious central character, stunning writing and an ending that will leave you reeling makes The Other Typist the kind of book you can't get out of your head * Good Housekeeping *
I was absolutely gripped, I loved it -- Alex Heminsley * The Claudia Winkleman Arts Show, BBC Radio 2 *
The tension slowly rises as Rose is inextricably wrapped up in Odalie's strange world - one in which this glamorous stranger constantly reinvents her past * Daily Express *
An intense psychological thriller that will appeal to fans of Notes on a Scandal * Sunday Mirror *
Take a dollop of Alfred Hitchcock, a dollop of Patricia Highsmith, throw in some Great Gatsby flourishes, and the result is Rindell's debut, a pitch-black comedy about a police stenographer accused of murder in 1920s Manhattan . . . deliciously addictive * Kirkus Reviews *
A genuinely delightful, witty page turner, full of surprises * Diva *

“A fantastic read.”
Smooth as velvet prose, a believable narrator and a back drop of 1920's prohibition era New York set this book up to be a fantastic read. I found myself absolutely enthralled desperate to see what happens next.
i love this because its very good and it has a good morel for it plus its great for readers that have been reading loads of books for year.
A great read about Rose and the other typist who turns up and things start changing and the story unfolds.
