The Widow Press Reviews

'The ultimate psychological thriller. Barton carefully unspools this dark, intimate tale of a terrible crime, a stifling marriage, and the lies spouses tell not just to each other, but to themselves in order to make it through. The ending totally blew me away.' LISA GARDNER

'Stunning from start to finish. I devoured it in one sitting. The best book I've read this year. If you liked GONE GIRL, you'll love this. Fiona Barton is a major new talent.' M J Arlidge

'Dark, compelling and utterly unputdownable. My book of the year so far' C. L. Taylor, author of THE ACCIDENT and THE LIE

'A brilliant, enthralling debut' Jill Mansell
