Playing with Fire Synopsis

What if your child wanted you dead? Julia is terrified by her daughter's aggressive behaviour. Lily has changed from an angelic little girl into someone she is afraid to be alone with. What scares Julia most, though, is that she knows why Lily is acting this way, but no-one will believe her. If she is going to help Lily, she will have to find the answers alone, embarking on a search that will take her to the shadowy back streets of Venice. There Julia finds far more than just answers, and uncovers a heartbreaking, long-buried tale of tragedy and devastation. And this discovery has put her in serious danger... I defy you to read the first chapter and not singe your fingers reading all the rest. It's that compelling. It's that good. (David Baldaccci).

Playing with Fire Press Reviews

I defy you to read the first chapter and not singe your fingers reading all the rest. It's that compelling. It's that good. DAVID BALDACCI Tess Gerritsen is at the top of her game. Compelling and satisfying, this eerie, suspenseful novel had me turning the pages until the early hours. Paula Daly Deeply creepy, seriously clever. Sharon Bolton Highly original thriller...Works brilliantly well as a thriller written across two timelines, with a heartfelt back story. Really gripping stuff. Sunday Mirror
