Review

"Scarily believable" (Essentials)

"With cracking dialogue, compelling characters and a page-turning plot about every mother's worst nightmare - the abduction of a teenage daughter - this is a truly promising debut by Daly. She writes with a singular voice and a fierce passion that roars off the page, while also displaying a visceral understanding of the betrayals and humiliations of domestic life ... With a sharp, double-twist ending, it announces Daly as a potential star, and one with the courage to take risks" (Geoffrey Wansell Daily Mail)

"In Paula Daly's strong debut, the lost-child horrorshow Just What Kind of Mother Are You?, the child is, in a neat, needling twist, that of Lisa's posh best friend rather than her own. Lisa is exhausted trying to balance motherhood and work, so forgets that Lucinda is coming to stay on the night she goes missing... The result is fiendishly addictive as well as perceptive about guilt and social class" (Guardian)

"Just What Kind of Mother Are You? is the very definition of a page-turner - the sort of book that causes you to lose half a day without even noticing. Savour every page, because this will probably be your book of the year. With characters so real they can't possibly be made up, it's a brilliant, thrilling story of friendship, families and the sort of terrifying betrayal that can only happen to those closest to us" (Elizabeth Haynes, author of Into the Darkest Corner)

"One of the most hypnotically gripping books I've read in a long, long time. Masterfully written and utterly unputdownable, this thriller will surprise and astound you with every ingenious twist and turn" (Tess Gerritsen)

Book Description

What could be worse than a child going missing? When it's your best friend's child. And it was on your watch... An emotionally fraught psychological thriller and a shrewd examination of family life - and the evil that can lie beneath.
