Extraordinary. A rich and deep portrait. . . a gripping read * Guardian *
Catherine Bailey has already demonstrated a truly remarkable ability to intertwine searing family histories with great historical events. With The Lost Boys she outdoes even herself, with a true story that simultaneously shows huge personal empathy with the fate of two toddler brothers as well as a profound understanding of the pure evil that lurked at the heart of the Third Reich
I was gripped by The Lost Boys - it contained more tension, more plot in fact - than any thriller and was written with her usual extraordinary clarity and panache. To say that she makes history come alive is such a cliche and yet it's so true, she is absolutely one of my favourite writers
Bailey has an extraordinary talent for bringing history to life and The Lost Boys is as thrilling as any novel * Daily Mail *
Remarkable . . . The Lost Boys is a powerful, engrossing story of a journey into the heart of darkness and final escape from it * Sunday Times *
Bailey has a knack for bringing characters to life . . . Fascinating * Times *
One of the most harrowing, beautifully written and brilliantly researched books I have read in a very long time. I was completely absorbed from first page to last, and I enormously admire both Catherine Bailey's dedication to her subject and her expertise in recounting such a complex narrative. She is brilliant at conveying both character and location, and maintains an extraordinary control over every section of the story
Bailey has an extraordinary ability to penetrate right to the heart of a family and uncover often painful stories. An important book [that] reads like a terrifying thriller * Daily Telegraph *
Black Diamonds has the great gift of bringing to life personal histories...wonderfully paced and wholly satisfying -- Kate Atkinson on 'Black Diamonds'
Extraordinary, fascinating, harrowing. A truly compelling read * Sunday Telegraph on 'Black Diamonds' *
Gripping. Reads like the best kind of mystery story. * Sunday Times on 'The Secret Rooms' *
Compelling. A remarkable piece of research which throws a bright shaft of light on powerful people, hypocrisy and the First World War * Guardian on 'The Secret Rooms' *
