I HATED YOU

Reviews

Lehane has written two books - one, an insightful examination of the search for identity and belonging, and two, a thriller that constantly leaves you guessing - and then smashed them together into one terrific read. Lehane is the master of complex human characters thrust into suspenseful, page-turning situations. In short, I hate him. But I'll read anything he writes
Gillian Flynn
The most thrilling novel I'll read all year. Since We Fell is simmering with emotion, menace, and humour. I loved it
Kate Atkinson
With sharply acute characterisation, this is classic Lehane
Guardian
One of the outstanding crime novelists of this century . . . absorbing . . . demonstrating a psychological depth and sensitivity
The Times
Complex, tense, compelling, and an emotional and strategic hall of mirrors, where nothing is what it seems - but I would follow Dennis Lehane anywhere
Lee Child
terrific . . . a crime writer fully the equal of more ostensibly literary authors
Evening Standard
Acclaimed Lehane is at the top of his game with this multi-layered story of a troubled woman who begins to mistrust her perfect husband. The plot oozes tension and the brilliant writing makes this a thriller to lose yourself in
Sunday Mirror
Complex . . . filmically arresting
Independent
In Since We Fell we see the same enormous talent and literary skill that has characterized his other work. Few use language that has such raw power. His ability to create levels of tension that cause the reader to sweat in a cold room has no peer.This story is hard to put down. The mystery and intrigue never let go; the heart-racing tempo and twists and turns are engaging and unexpected all the way down the track
James Lee Burke
One of crime fiction's most exciting and well-orchestrated finales-rife with dramatic tension and buttressed by rich psychological interplay between the characters. Don't be surprised if Since We Fell makes readers forget about that other psychological thriller featuring an unstable heroine named Rachel
Booklist
Once you pick up a Dennis Lehane novel you're hooked. It's just that simple. Since We Fell is a complex, compelling, page-turner of a novel from a master storyteller at the top of his game
Kristin Hannah, New York Times bestselling author
What seems at the start to be an edgy psychological mystery seamlessly transforms into a crafty, ingenious tale of murder and deception
Kirkus
Splendidly-engineered, wide-ranging plotting and Lehane's intuitive pulse for human frailties make this a compelling read
LoveReading
Sharply different . . . [Lehane] remains one of the great, diabolical thriller kings who seems intimately acquainted with darkness and can make it seep from the page of screen
New York Times
Lehane, is, as ever, a graceful writer, observant of the world that shapes his characters' lives
The Washington Post
Combines pulp thrills with literary heart and sophistication
Entertainment Weekly
The mood and pace change directions as quickly as the plot, but Lehane never lets his narrative vehicle veer out of control
Booklist
The author replaces tension with action and pace, keeping the reader relentlessly turning the pages to a propulsive climax
Big Issue
Lehane is a superior crime writer and this nuanced novel is both a gripping portrait of the psychological wounds we carry inside us and a stealthy, plot-twisting thriller steeped into darkness and violence
Metro
A riveting thriller . . . Lehane's prose knocks most of his crime-writing contemporaries into a cocked hat, and I gulped his novel down with enormous pleasure
Daily Telegraph
One of America's best writers in any genre
Irish Independent
Hitchcockian... with characteristically twisty action and crackling dialogue
Mark Lawson, the Guardian's Best Crime Books and Thrillers of 2017
There's something of Hitchcock about the way menace begins to ooze from every situation. Compelling's the word!
Evening Telegraph (Peterborough)
