Astute... With exquisite pacing, Edgar Award-winner Berry (Under the Harrow) guides us to a stunning conclusion. * Seattle Times * Thrilling * Laura Lippman, author of SUNBURN (O Magazine, Summer's Best True Crime-Inspired Thrillers * Clever, thrilling writing that wound me in and left me heartbroken when I turned the last page and realised it was over. * Fiona Barton, author of THE WIDOW and THE CHILD * What a book! A skilful and compelling exploration of families, crime, and class. * Clare Mackintosh, author of I LET YOU GO, I SEE YOU and LET ME LIE * Flynn Berry vividly re-imagines one of the most notorious crimes of the 20th century. A Double Life is a thrilling page-turner, but it is also a compassionate and angry book: with forensic precision, Berry picks apart lives derailed by violence and the ways in which class privilege protect the guilty.' * Paula Hawkins, author of THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN and INTO THE WATER * Berry's sophomore effort is just as smart and haunting as her Edgar-winning debut, Under the Harrow * CrimeReads (11 Crime Novels You Should Read This Summer) * Thrilling * Good Housekeeping (The 25 Best New Books for Summer 2018) * Engrossing * Mail on Sunday * Berry gives the well-worn story of Lord Lucan a fresh twist with this clever tale which tells the story of a woman determined to bring her father's high society friends to justice. * i - Independent, Best Beach Reads for Summer * A detailed and compelling story of a family's fallout from a brutal crime, and the search for truth and retribution. * Fanny Blake, Woman & Home * Psychological suspense has a new reigning queen * New York Journal of Books * A quietly menacing thriller by up-and-coming talent Flynn Berry. * Good Housekeeping UK * A stifling air of unease builds with every page * Prima * A Double Life isn't just a whodunit but a damning dissection on class and privilege too. Fans of Elizabeth Day's The Party will love this. * Sarra Manning, Red Online * A compulsive page-turner * Daily Mail * [An] interesting ... reimagining of the Lord Lucan story... Berry brings the story to a satisfyingly shocking conclusion. * Guardian * Flynn Berry writes thrillingly about women raging against a world that protects cruel and careless men. She's less preoccupied by scenes of abuse than the psychological toll of its threat. Her protagonists seethe over their knowledge of violence and are fueled by a howling grief for its victims. Berry proved in Under the Harrow that her prose can be as blistering as it is lush. Here, too, the writing is rich and moody, without any unnecessary fuss... The ending is as shocking as it is satisfying. * New York Times, Editor's Choice * As well as confirming the promise of Berry's debut, Under the Harrow, the book demonstrates that fusing fiction and true crime can be mesmerisingly effective. * The Sunday Times * Berry skips between Claire's present-day investigations and her reconstruction of her parents' lives almost three decades earlier in this beautifully paced and satisfyingly ominous story. * Observer *
