`Very occasionally, a novel that's not in the crime genre grips me as much as the best thrillers do. The People at Number 9 held me in its vice-like grip from first page to last. It's a fascinating analysis of an unhealthy friendship based on insecurity and delusion, and the characters are so vividly drawn that I sympathised with them and despaired of them in equal measure.' - Sophie Hannah, New York Times bestselling author `Cleverly maintains suspense...a compelling and readable tale of our times' - The Daily Mail `An exciting, dark novel about friendship; brutally truthful and raw.' - Adele Parks `This was clever, relentless and utterly recognisable. I absolutely loved it!' - Katie Fforde `Excruciating yet unputdownable, this is domestic noir at its most gripping.' - Woman & Home 'A cautionary tale of what happens when you get caught up with the in-crowd... razor sharp dialogue, detail straight out of a Sunday supplement and a gimlet eye for social comedy. The characters and the games they play are instantly recognisable to anyone who has stood at the school gates and felt slightly out of place. I gulped it down quicker than a dirty Martini.' - Veronica Henry `Beady insights into female friendship. Irresistible, excruciating and unputdownable.' - Fanny Blake `Incisively witty, painfully true... draws the reader in with the voyeuristic joy of gossiping about our friends and neighbours, with a shocking sting in the tail to catch us all out.' - Samantha King `I LOVED it. Such an unsettling read, with a whole grass-is-greener vibe that makes it really quite creepy. The People at Number 9 has a really voyeuristic feel - like spying on your neighbours through a window. Perfect reading for a cold, dark night!' - Lisa Hall
