Atmospheric and packed with suspense, kept me on edge from start to finish * Woman & Home Magazine * Addictive . . . a pace so relentless that you'll want to inhale this novel in one uninterrupted sitting * The Sunday Times * The last book I read in one sitting like this was Louise Doughty's Apple Tree Yard. Like Louise, Lucy Atkins is brilliant at ramping up the tension so that there's not a chance of relief until the end * Polly Samson, author of The Kindness * Truly unnerving. Atkins perfectly captures the vulnerability that comes with moving overseas, away from friends and support networks, and uses it expertly in this compelling novel. Not just one-more-page gripping but perceptive and beautifully written * Lucie Whitehouse, author of Before We Met * I absolutely loved this novel. The Other Child is seriously gripping, seriously scary and seriously brilliant * Clare Kendal, author of The Book of You * An elegantly written page-turner which pulled me in from the start and held its grip until the final page * Renee Knight, author of bestselling psychological thriller Disclaimer * Taut, tense, and beautifully written. I held my breath between chapters and didn't sleep until I reached the end * Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go *
