"Simply one of the most disturbing thrillers I've read in years. In short, I loved it, right down to the utterly chilling final line." (Gillian Flynn)
"I tore through Our Kind of Cruelty - toxic love, obsession and the unflinching unravelling of a mind. Scarily plausible, a great read." (Ali Land)
"A propulsive and addictive study of the darkness of obsessive love. I was completely gripped from the first word to the last!" (Lisa Jewell)

"A perfect nightmare of a novel ― as merciless a thriller as I’ve ever read. Astonishingly dark and sensationally accomplished." (AJ Finn)
"One of the most unsettling books I have read in a while – but brilliant … Obsessive love has never been written so frighteningly in my book." (Woman's Way)

The supsense has the flavour of Patricia Highsmith and Hitchcock while the storyline delivers the same kind of punch as recent news reports about the Me Too campaign.
Mike – one of the two central characters – is a deeply scary portrait of the man who will not take no for an answer. He justifies his own increasingly menacing actions by believing his ex partner actually wants him to behave as he does, she likes it even. His ex-partner is herself not all sweetness and light – how few of us are – but does this mean, as Mike believes, she ‘deserves’ or and is a willing participant in his oppressive agenda. In courtroom scenes familiar to many victims of male violence her own sexuality and once ‘private life’ is turned against her – fairly or not? This is a really good book, disturbing, well crafted and thought provoking. In the era of #MeToo it is hugely compelling and relevant. I very much look forward to other works by this author.
