Psychological suspense has a new adjective - pure Candlish 
*Cara Hunter*

I'm blown away by how good it is. A gripping tale of love, secrets and deception - it's the best psychological thriller I've read in a long time
*Mark Edwards*

I loved The Only Suspect: a heady dose of mid Nineties nostalgia, with trademark whiplash twists and satire. Louise Candlish has surpassed her own, always high standards. Quite possibly her best yet
*Sarah Vaughan*

The Only Suspect is a suspenseful, thrilling and breath-taking mystery about the dark secrets that live in the past, and the paralysing fear that they'll be uncovered. If you thought you misbehaved in the nineties you've got nothing on the devious, duplicitous cast of this book. Gripping, unpredictable and tense, it'll keep you guessing all the way through
*C L Taylor*

I was completely pulled in by the story and the layers of clever plotting; the twists and turns - though well set up, took me completely by surprise and I found myself staying up late to finish it, utterly absorbed by the excellent story telling
*Jane Shemilt*

The Only Suspect kept me guessing all the way through. It’s the book version of a Rubik's Cube with so many unexpected twists and turns. An adrenaline burner for sure!
*Liz Nugent*

As good as I hoped it would be. Messy relationships, deception and some big surprises. Loved it! 
*Jane Fallon*

WOW. As always Louise Candlish has written a taut, unsettling, compulsive and ingenious novel with gasp-out-loud twists and fatally flawed characters forced into tragedy by circumstances. I LOVED it! 
*Isabelle Broom*

I was sucked in from the beginning, hooked and hoodwinked. A masterclass in psychological thriller writing 
*Diane Jeffrey*

I couldn't put it down
*Shari Lapena*

I couldn't put it down! Fantastic characters, a trip down memory lane into '90s London and I honestly didn't see that ending coming AT ALL. Deliciously dark and devastating 
*Nikki Smith*

Tense, taut and twisty. Candlish is a master of her craft
*Adele Parks*

A nerve-shredding plot that kept me guessing to the finish. Another triumph!
*Fiona Barton*

I absolutely adored The Only Suspect. Tightly plotted and brilliantly written with twists so perfect they made me gasp out loud on more than one occasion. The story was so tense I couldn’t stop turning the pages, desperate to know the outcome. My favourite Louise Candlish book so far. Highly recommended
*Claire Douglas*

An incredible page-turner…An absolute must-read. Get this on your 2023 wish list
*BA Paris*

The Only Suspect is a heady pleasure from the very first page. It's both a page-tearing mystery and a pitch-perfect 90s period piece. Shimmers with mystery, tension and dirty glamour
*Abigail Dean*

This book should come with a warning: you won't speak to anyone until the last page
*Celia Walden*
