I was with Louise Welsh's gutsy gripping heroine Stevie Flint every terrifying step of the way - Kirsty Wark, author of The Legacy of Elizabeth PringleI read it in two sittings, pausing only to sleep and dream about it. Gripping, perfectly paced and beautifully written - Erin Kelly, author of The Poison TreeA terrifying journey into the possible, this is dystopia for today. Feral, frightening and fascinating, A Lovely Way to Burn gripped and chilled me in equal measure - Val McDermidThe first in a trilogy, and it should be huge - BooksellerI've felt for a while that we are in the mood for an intelligent slice of London-based dystopia, and I think Louise Welsh has cracked it with A Lovely Way to Burn . . . it kept me up all night nervously turning the pages - Cathy Rentzenbrink, BooksellerWelsh constructs an intelligent mystery within the pages of A Lovely Way to Burn . . . It's close enough to what we know to be utterly terrifying and that was part of its hold on me. Welsh has taken our everyday lives, given them a twist, and put them in the background of an intriguing, addictive novel - GirlreporterThe book isn't out until the 20th March but a mixture of Welsh's writing style and the subject matter made it impossible to resist - CrimepiecesThis is can't put down good - Candis
