The Widow Press Reviews

'Feted as this year's The Girl on the Train' OBSERVER

'The big thriller of the year' STYLIST

'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

'The most buzzed about book of 2016' HEAT

'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
