Reviews

"Relentless, heart-stopping suspense"
Kirkus Reviews||"Price's pacing is tight, aided by direct, clipped prose that underscores Scotty's brutality and Angel's fragile emotional state. Both the best and worst of humanity shine through in this gripping novel"
Publishers Weekly||"If suspense is your bag, this is a book to read"
VOYA||"Price's fast-paced thrilling story paints a bleak and depressing picture of American 'trailer' life set against an unforgiving landscape . . . Revealing, raw and shocking but it's also moving, uplifting and totally unmissable"
Blackpool Gazette||"Compulsively readable"
