When Amber Hewerdine consults a hypnotherapist as a desperate last resort, she doesn't expect that anything much will change. She doesn't expect it to help with her chronic insomnia ...She doesn't expect to hear herself, under hypnosis, saying words that mean nothing to her: 'Kind, cruel, kind of cruel' - words she has seen somewhere before, if only she could remember where ...She doesn't expect to be arrested two hours later, as a result of having spoken those words out loud, in connection with the brutal murder of Katharine Allen, a woman she's never heard of ...
'A writer of prodigious talent ... This is a jaw-droppingly assured book which sometimes feels as if there's a plot twist on every page ... This reader was left speechless with admiration ... a truly sensational book.'
Daily Express on LASTING DAMAGE
'A remarkable novel, and an adventure to read ... A first-class whodunit that will keep you reading long into the night.'
Scotsman on A ROOM SWEPT WHITE
'For those who demand emotional intelligence and literary verve from their thrillers, Sophie Hannah is the writer of choice.'
'One of the great unmissables of this genre - intelligent, classy and with a wonderfully Gothic imagination.'
'Like Hannah's previous multilayered thrillers, her seventh offers the unravelling of several mysteries at once, a rich mix of the dark and diverting, and astute portraits of women falling apart'
