An excellent read (Martina Cole)
It's a rare debut that has this much polish. Harrowing and horrifying, head and shoulders above most of the competition (Val McDermid)

A creepy crime debut with shades of Babadook about it . . . I think it will be huge (Sarah Hilary)
Gripping. A total page-turner. A rattling good read (D E Meredith)
Cleverest and creepiest plot I've read in a long time. Left me breathless with fear . . . utterly brilliant (Michelle Davies)
Tearing through RATTLE. It's brilliant! (Tasha Kavanagh)

A chilling and inventive debut (Simon Beckett)
Fast-paced, vivid and confident – you are in the hands of an accomplished storyteller. Not only does it smother with its horror, it startles and uplifts with its humanity (Julia Crouch)
So here's a book to look forward to in 2017 . . . #Rattle by talented Fiona Cummins. Chilling, original and beautifully written. Loved it! (Amanda Jennings)
Taut, menacing and brilliantly written (Louise Millar)
Rattle is such an original thriller; a novel that plumbs the depths of evil yet stuns you with its humanity. The writing is never less than sublime (Colette McBeth)
Seriously creepy and very well written. One that'll have you double checking your door's are locked at night (Ali Land)
Original, gripping and beautifully written - I love this book (Alice Feeney)
Amid the outpouring of crime novels centred on missing children, Rattle is up there with the best of them. Fiona Cummins has created an exceptionally creepy psychopathic killer . . . A gem of a scary debut (Marcel Berlins in The Times)
Vividly contrasts the apparent normality of suburbia with the awful truths it can conceal . . . A thriller that is capable of keeping you up all night ― and then haunting your dreams. Creepy and accomplished, it is not quite as scary as Lecter, but close (Daily Mail)
Serial killers don’t come much scarier than the monstrous creation who haunts this astonishingly assured debut, which transforms London’s leafy suburb of Blackheath into a realm of mythic horror . . . as the tension and urgency escalates, Cummins takes you on a macabre but riveting thrill ride (Sunday Mirror)
A highly original and creepy tale that rattles along with menace and does not let up until the cracking finale (Daily Express)
A gripping psychological thriller from a debut author that gives a glimpse into the mind of a psychopath more frightening than you could possibly imagineSee all Product description

I didn't storm through this book and in fact it took me a while to read it and I tend to judge a book by how much I want to pick up my Kindle and read and with this book I wasn't doing that. That said it's certainly not a terrible book and the characters are fairly well fleshed out and believable but the book as a whole just wasn't for me.
I would definitely give this author another go as I think she definitely has potential to write a great book in the future.
The concept sounded good in the blurb and I still think there is a good story in there, but this isn't it.
There were overtones of John Connolly, even down to the protagonist being called The Collector.
Suspense and horror, although intended by he author, were completely missing from the book.
It seemed more descriptive and plodded on until I finally gave up half way through.
She had obviously done her homework on Jakey's condition and it showed ...
he was the only fleshed out character and the only one I warmed to.
At the beginning I thought it too wordy but I got used to it as I went along.
Hope there's a next one!
Thank goodness, I am well into my adult years before I got to read Rattle (The Bone Collector) or I don't think I would ever sleep again.
It not only encompassed fear through the mind of a child but also the fear that parents have about losing their child. I will not be able to miss book 2 which is out now.
