'Visceral and compelling reading. Another cracker from Jane Isaac.'||'A well-crafted mystery. Isaac creates some well-drawn three-dimensional characters and at each sitting I was left reading more than I intended to. Crime writing at its best.'||'Jane Isaac just gets better with every book. Deeply unsettling and unputdownable.'||'An intelligent, convincing thriller with genuine characters and a pacy plot. Jane Isaac writes unmissable quality crime fiction.'||'Gripped from the very first page. A highly satisfying, but deeply unsettling tale of a family torn apart. Expertly told from both sides of the investigation. and just when you think it's over, it's really only the beginning. Mesmerising and disturbing, this is crime writing at its very best.'||'Brilliantly and intricately plotted, Jane Isaac has produced a terrific page-turner'||'A perfectly executed police investigation into a horrific act of violence and a moving depiction of buried secrets. My first read from Jane Isaac but definitely not my last.'||'An engaging writing style which draws the reader in.'||'Jane managed to weave an intricate story with all the elements I would expect from a good thriller! Her ability to write engaging characters, a tight plot and authentic police procedures made this story a joy to read. Brilliant!'
