Product description

Review

As featured on BBC Radio 4 - Woman's Hour.
,/br> 'A wonderfully observed tale. Clever, compelling and utterly captivating.' - Caroline Smailes, author of The Drowning of Arthur Braxton

'...filled with a cast of intriguing characters who live and breathe on the page. I loved it.' - Amanda Jennings, author of Sworn Secret

'A clever, unputdownable study of madness and manipulation.' - Hereford Times

'This psychological thriller, with complex plot twists and subtle characterisation, reprises the theme of the outsider trying to drive an insider insane or does it?' 4/5 - The Lady, 1st November 2013

'This is a book with the power to make you catch your breath whenever you think of it.' - Fleur in Her World

'There is no doubt that this is going to be one of my Top Ten Books of the year. There were times when I was actually a little bit scared of turning over the page, this is a mind-bending psychological head-f%!k of the highest order. I loved it!' - Anne Cater, New Books Magazine


'The Nearest Thing to Crazy took hold of me from the start and didn't let go until the end. In fact I am still thinking about this book and its themes a week after finishing. This is a great book and it deserves all the praise it could possibly be given.' - --Jessica Patient, The View From Here
