A twist I never saw coming, and a male main character with insecurity and vulnerability – I’ve never met anyone like him in a thriller before.

A thrilling, creepy climax and a double-whammy twist. A more than promising debut.

A terrific debut exploring the vulnerabilities and co-dependency of damaged individuals. I loved the wonderfully subtle but insistent tone of menace woven into the narrative, winding me into the colliding worlds of Ben and Alice and pushing me on to finish it. Clever and compelling!
