Hold Your Tongue Press Reviews

A taut thriller. - Crime Reads

Hold Your Tongue is a cracking police procedural with enough gruesome deaths to satisfy even the darkest appetite. - David Jackson, author of A TAPPING AT MY DOOR

Expertly paced, intriguing and with a strong emotional kick - this is a great start to a fab new detective series. - SJI Holliday, author of VIOLET

Gritty, gruesome and NOT to be missed!! Hold Your Tongue is a shocking and brilliant debut by an author who has the rare talent to drag the reader right into the heart of the story and keep them on the edge of their seat until the very last page. I loved DI Eve Hunter's ability to be both fragile - emotionally and physically broken, and wracked with guilt - and at the same time 100% badass! She was an instantly likeable heroine and one I can't wait to read about again. - Lauren North, author of THE PERFECT BETRAYAL

With a twisty plot and dark, nuanced characters, Hold Your Tongue makes for compulsive reading. Not only is it a fantastic crime novel, but the start of an exciting new series. - Jack Jordan, author of BEFORE HER EYES

Hold Your Tongue is a tense debut in which the past and present collide with devastating consequences. I hope to read more of DI Eve Hunter. - Mari Hannah, author of THE LOST

If you like your crime novels blood-curdling, Deborah Masson's debut is terrifying, edge-of-your-seat stuff. - Emma Curtis, bestselling author of ONE LITTLE MISTAKE

Gritty and close to the bone, HOLD YOUR TONGUE is a compelling, addictive read that I devoured in one sitting. With complex, layered characters and a tension-fuelled plot, this is one of my favourite debuts of the year. - Lisa Hall, author of BETWEEN YOU AND ME

Through it all, she always read crime fiction and, when motherhood finally settled her into being an adult (maybe even a responsible one) she turned her hand to writing what she loved.
