Second Life Press Reviews

'A Fatal Attraction for the digital age, but with a crucial twist ... Watson is a master at turning the screw.' Evening Standard

'A gripping read - deftly plotted, with convincing characters and an unsettling premise that builds to a truly disturbing conclusion. Second Life is ample proof that Watson is no mere one-hit wonder.' Independent

'A gripping, contemporary thriller, this is the sort of thing you'll plough through in a hurried weekend of page turning.' ShortList Magazine

'A fierce, captivating portrait. Julia's disintegration is heartbreaking and underlines what a formidable presence Watson has as a writer: a star is confirmed.' Daily Mail
