Watch Her Disappear is a compelling, riveting read. -- Charlotte Heathcote * Daily Express *
Once again, this is a brilliantly paced thriller that grips you throughout. One of the great things about Eva Dolan is that she can tackle a sensitive subject without preaching to the reader... As with her previous books, Eva Dolan manages to make the story hard hitting, tragic and contemporary, while writing with authority. Any reader will be enthralled and heartbroken at the same time, and she certainly knows how to write a whodunit and keep you gripped throughout. -- Paul Diggett * Nudge *
Dolan's gritty novels, set in a Peterborough Hate Crimes unit, are always socially engaged and this one combines plenty of urban texture and a penetrating examination of the pressures suffered by transgender people. * Metro *
Dolan tackles a difficult subject with empathy and authenticity. -- Jon Coates * Daily Express *
