*'Stunningly accomplished from first page to last, this is the most exciting debut thriller I've read all year. The suspense crackles, and the twists come thick and fast, but - more than that ? it has a touching poignancy that brings tears to your eyes. ...Written with the power and panache of a young Daphne du Maurier, it's devastatingly good, and announces the arrival if a truly original talent.'
