The characterisation here is exceptional . . . This book is quite beautifully constructed, with perfect pace - and has real emotional depth as the harrowing story of treachery and betrayal unfolds. The different threads are quite perfectly handled - this author really is a quite excellent storyteller, who handles the complicated structure with total ease, never dropping a stitch * Being Anne Reading *
Spectacularly written and plotted, Howells is a masterful thriller writer, so if you're a fan of the genre, you must, must put her on your list . . . Howells' whole writing style is a beautiful balancing act. It's not the beauty of the end, it's the beauty of the book in its entirety. This story is a little cracker.
