Reviews

Bolton knows precisely how to ratchet up the tension and tell a cracking story Guardian Bolton has already made a considerable name for herself with her well-crafted, original and spooky crime thrillers Daily Mail Frisson-generating... dark, psychological crime Independent Blood Harvest is the book I wish I could have written. Heart-stopping, bone-chilling, and deliciously written. S.J. Bolton is a thriller star -- CHELSEA CAIN Bolton excels... a mystery that twines its way to the secretive, rotten heart of the village Observer
