"Ace is, well an ace, when it comes to plot and description." The Globe and Mail.
"A disturbing storyline of family secrets, deftly told, and with a remarkable sense of place. Almost mythic in nature, it's narrated by a chorus of voices which stay with you all the way to the stunning ending and beyond." Craig Robertson, international bestselling author"Family secrets stalk three generations of women in Cathy Ace's suspense-packed page turner, THE WRONG BOY. The ending is a stunner." Hallie Ephron, NY Times bestselling author of 'You'll Never Know Dear' "...a truly gripping and strong narrative, coupled with a story line that is both intriguing and thoroughly entertaining." Yrsa Sigurdardottir, award-winning, No. 1 bestselling Icelandic crime fiction author "A clever plot with a web of intrigue and characters who stay with you." Jane Corry, author of the Sunday Times bestsellers 'My Husband's Wife', 'Blood Sisters' and 'The Dead Ex'"Cathy Ace's skill at evoking place is a stand-out highlight of The Wrong Boy, a neatly wrought story which combines a mystery...with a study of tangled relationships within a close-knit community..." Martin Edwards, author of 'Gallows Court' & winner of the CWA Dagger in the Library"A close-knit community in a quaint Welsh village in an area of outstanding beauty. Sounds cozy. But Cathy Ace's stunning new standalone, THE WRONG BOY, is about as cozy as a cornered snake. Told in a rising chorus of authentic voices, the story is deft and disturbing, creepingly claustrophobic, and with a grip that tightens to a choke-hold before its shattering conclusion." Catriona McPherson, multi-award-winning author of 'Go To My Grave' "Drenched in Welsh atmosphere, forbidding weather, and mysterious folklore, THE WRONG BOY is a gem of a thriller that bewitches right up to the twisted ending you won't see coming. Masterful plotting and characters so real, you'll swear you know them. Ace is a master portraitist." James W Ziskin, multi-award-winning author of The Ellie Stone Mysteries'Like a slow pot that boils, the author builds...this tightly-woven and intriguing mystery...grippingly riveting as the story came to a dramatic climax.'
