‘Absolutely brilliant’ Jacqueline Wilson, Sunday Times

‘A lot of work must have gone into writing this novel but it is no labour at all to devour’ Lionel Shriver, New Statesman

‘Brilliantly involving . . . juicy, beautifully observed’ Metro

‘A stay-up-all-night page-turner’ Glamour

‘Masterly . . . Waters is a cracking storyteller’ Tatler
