"A cool, contemporary, whip-smart thriller." * Paula Hawkins,
bestselling author of THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN and INTO THE WATER
"A black diamond of a thriller - gleaming, sharp, deeply dark - but so much more: a cool, elegant novel with a heartbeat, a pulse, and a sting in its tail." * A. J. Finn, bestselling author of THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW *
"Clever, clever, clever. At the black heart of this story is a personal assistant - the colleague in your office who hears and knows everything about everyone - and Renee leads us on a deeply unsettling exploration of the limits of loyalty. Believe me, chats by the photocopier will never be the same..." * Fiona Barton, bestselling author of THE WIDOW *
"Woah, you are in for a treat with The Secretary! Dark and intriguing with utterly compelling characters. I genuinely couldn't put it down." * Laura Marshall, author of FRIEND REQUEST *
"An engrossing study of twisted dynamics in a relationship where one person holds all the power. Fans of Notes on a Scandal will love it." * Tammy Cohen, author of THEY ALL FALL DOWN *
"Deceptively clever and so unsettling. I love the way she casually slips in a twist that makes you shake your head at how wrong you were!" * Lesley Kara, author of THE RUMOUR *
"Filled with a creeping sense of menace that intensifies beautifully as the novel unfolds. Watch out for this one ... absolutely brilliant." * Fiona Cummins, author of RATTLE *
"I started reading #SecretaryBook last night and couldn't put it down... Such a deliciously dark, hugely satisfying read." * Paul Burston, author of THE BLACK PATH *
"The Secretary is an excellent, dark and clever thriller with a compelling central character. The story draws you in from the start and builds and builds to an intense and unsettling conclusion. I loved it." * Jenny Quintana, author of THE MISSING GIRL *
"The Secretary is an absolute masterpiece of pace, plot and precision to detail. Renee Knight so deftly winches up the tension that I found I was shallow breathing by the end, desperate to see the conclusion but terrified to watch all at once. I loved Disclaimer and now with The Secretary following it, Renee Knight has become a must read author for me." * Holly Seddon, author of TRY NOT TO BREATHE *
