Praise for THE POISON TREE: A terrific suspense debut, reminiscent of another British woman s auspicious bow: Daphne DuMaurier s Rebecca. The shadows gather until the ending looms like a threatening figure. This one gets the writer s ultimate bit of praise: "I wish I had written it." Stephen King A compelling creeper . . . More please, Ms. Kelly! Quickly! "The Washington Post" There is a brooding sense of impending doom and imminent danger. . . . [T]he explosive ending, its revelations about the threesome and the lengths to which people will go to preserve or take what's theirs, makes THE POISON TREE a rich and satisfying pleasure.
