Product description


Anyone wanting smart and compelling crime fiction with razor-sharp social comment should read Eva Dolan. In fact, EVERYONE should read her (Mark Billingham)

It couldn't be more timely. Or more imbued with passion (Val McDermid)

Terrific...A haunting novel about friendship, suspicion and betrayal (Sunday Times, Crime Book of the Month)

Stupendous. The thriller comes of age (Sarah Hilary, winner of the Theakston Crime Book of the Year Award)

A thoroughly contemporary and distinctively intelligent thriller (Mail on Sunday, Thriller of the Week)

Dolan is expert at the orchestration of tension, right up to the vertiginous climax (Barry Forshaw Guardian)

Expect clever plotting, complex characters and the best book yet from an author at the top of her game (Lisa Gray Daily Record)

I absolutely loved it. I don't think there's another crime writer around at the moment who's engaging so passionately with urgent social issues, and creating such thrilling drama out of them (Mick Herron, author of the Jackson Lamb series)

A tense, intelligent, politically charged thriller, expertly crafted by a writer at the top of her game (Mari Hannah, winner of the CWA Dagger in the Library)

Searing and uncompromising and so inventive in structure I could but marvel (Rachel Rhys, author of Dangerous Crossing)

‘An impeccably structured story that blends the personal and political with searing effect. The key to Dolan's compulsive storytelling is that her action is rooted in utterly believable characters … This is terrific writing that engages the head and heart equally’ The Big Issue

‘A triumph’ Metro

'A sad, intelligent book, with a shocking ending.' The Times Saturday Review, Crime Book of the Month

Dolan excels at presenting readers with knotty, addictive tales that also force the reader to think more widely about the society we’re living in and the way in which its most vulnerable members are treated .. . wonderfully prescient … a master of pace … Ultimately this smart, deftly-told story resonates so strongly because of the complex, claustrophobic central relationship at its heart’ The I, Book of the Week

‘Contemporary London is brilliantly evoked in this timely, twisted story about social activism’ Sunday Mirror

‘Timely and twisty.’ The People

Book Description

Sunday Times Crime Book of the Month
The Times Crime Book of the Month
Mail on Sunday Thriller of the Week
