Reviews

A tightly-woven thriller that races to a conclusion I didn't see coming
NELL PATTISON
Fast-paced and shocking.
Woman's Weekly
What a tangled web! Brilliantly weaved and then carefully unravelled for the big revelations at the end. A totally gripping read.
SUSAN LEWIS
A fantastic, plot-twisting debut. Original and addictive.
CAMERON WARD
I adored TWELVE SECRETS - It was so much twisty-turny fun and I loved the characters and how their secrets unravelled. It's a fast-paced, utterly gripping thriller - a definite twelve out of ten!
VANESSA SAVAGE
A fine debut
Joan Smith, The Sunday Times (Books of the Year)
Original, unputdownable and a really great read
KATIE FFORDE
A page-turner with a final revelation that satisfies by being unguessable but retrospectively inevitable
Morning Star
A pacey thriller full of twists and turns. You won't be able to put TWELVE SECRETS down until the very end.
KARIN SLAUGHTER
Fast-paced and brimming with superb characters. I couldn't put it down for a single second. Twelve stars!
LISA JEWELL
Ominous at the beginning, breathless by the end ... this is excellent hardcore suspense
LEE CHILD
Twelve Secrets is rather special. So clever, so engrossing, a genuine 'just one more page' kind of book
M. W. CRAVEN
Utterly absorbing
SHARI LAPENA
Twelve Secrets is a smart, satisfying, one-of-a-kind thriller that entertained me from start to finish. It examines the confluence of family loyalties and dark secrets while keeping the plot boiling.
JAMES PATTERSON
Twelve Secrets contains cliff-hangers and revelations galore. [It] is all plot, plot, plot - and, boy, what a lot it's got.
THE TIMES
Absolutely addictive. An unforgettable and nuanced cast of characters, a claustrophobic setting, and a suspenseful and chilling examination of the dark and destructive power of secrets. You will sleep with your eyes open after reading this one.
GILLY MACMILLAN
Satisfyingly twisty, straight from Harlan Coben territory and surely Netflix bound
