5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 8 Aug. 2011
This review is from: The Girl on the Swing (Paperback)
Every detail, every nuance of Julia's daily life pulls you in little by little to the increasing intrigue of her true (or imagined?) past existence. This is a great story, a real wrench to have to leave the book. My partner, who also read it, started it on a Sunday lunchtime and finished it before bed - that's how unputdownable it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Very Best of Historical Fiction, 7 July 2011
This review is from: Die A Dry Death (Paperback)
I'd been told this was good but Die a Dry Death exceeded expectations. It took a little while to get used to the Dutch names but once accustomed, the view of the ordeal seen through the eyes of the different characters was absolutely gripping and the events that unfold made it extremely hard to put the book down.
Whereas many stories tend to fall flat in the middle, this one ramps up the tension and because of that I feared the ending might not be able to live up to the rest of the tale. My fears were unfounded. This is a wonderfully written, fascinating story. I'd happily recommend it to any discerning reader of historical fiction.
