Until You're Mine by Samantha Hayes
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Longlisted for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2014.

January 2014 Debut of the Month.

You of frail stomachs turn away from this. It’s brutal, bloody, sad and horribly compulsive. Concerning infidelity and the overwhelming desire to reproduce along with a couple of side plots to hold off the horror, this is disturbing stuff. Very good.

If you like Samantha Hayes you might also like to read books by Mo Hayder, Karen Rose and P. J. Tracy.

Reviews

'wonderfully creepy' - The Toronto Star

'If you only take one book on holiday with you it has to be Until You're Mine by Samantha Hayes. It's a totally unputdownable thriller that will keep you gripped to your sun lounger until the very end. And just when you think you've figured things out, watch out for the twist!' - Cosmopolitan

'A terse and thrilling story not to be missed: the unforseen ending feels like walking on quicksand.' - Psychologies
