MEDIA REVIEWS
"An intriguing and layered psychological thriller, What Alice Knew will hold you fast till its startling conclusion-and then you'll want to talk about it to anyone who will listen. An impressive debut." * Shari Lapena, author of 'The Couple Next Door' *
"Intriguing and compelling - it made me look at marriage in a different light ..." * Jane Corry, Author of 'My Husband's Wife' *
"The suspense [is] beautifully sustained ... the writing is finely crafted." * Joanne Harris *
"A tale of crime and morals ... an intriguing crime mystery that blends elements of psychological suspense and marital drama ... If you read this thinking you know where the story is going to go, just you wait. What Alice Knew is a tale of what it means to be a woman, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister and an artist. But more than anything, it's a story of humanity, in all it's ugliness and beauty, and the things people are willing to do for the ones they love." * Culturefly *
"T. A. Cotterell masterfully conjures up the suffocating atmosphere that envelopes the couple as they navigate the mental trauma of maintaining a complex web of lies ... An intriguing, well-constructed and dramatic debut." -- Justin Warshaw * Times Literary Supplement *
