You know the one? The one that means it was more than good. Beware That Girl is clever, twisted, dark and dangerous. It's secretive, frustrating, obsessive, disillusioned and utterly captivating. It's original and feisty and to be fair does upset you at times as there is a dark, sensitive and in-depth underlining to the plot throughout the read that will definitely shock you. Which has been written with respect and care which I appreciate when faced with what can be an uncomfortable part of a book. This is one fantastic read!A book that leaves you dangling by a thread over the wealthy New York skyline waiting for you to drop deep fast and hard to your death. Fabulous! * The Book Geek Wears Pajamas * The tension in this psychological thriller builds very quickly...watch out for the film version coming very soon... * Daily Mail * Beware That Girl is subtle, cleverly constructed and beautifully written. I desperately wanted both Kate and Olivia to come out of their problems unscathed even though that seemed a very tall order at times. This is a psychological thriller of the highest order. * Crime Review * A cracking, tangled thriller * Armadillo Magazine *
