Reviews

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
A pacey thriller full of twists and turns. You won't be able to put TWELVE SECRETS down until the very end.
KARIN SLAUGHTER
Ominous at the beginning, breathless by the end ... this is excellent hardcore suspense
LEE CHILD
Fast-paced and brimming with superb characters. I couldn't put it down for a single second. Twelve stars!
LISA JEWELL
Twelve Secrets is rather special. So clever, so engrossing, a genuine 'just one more page' kind of book
M. W. CRAVEN
What a tangled web! Brilliantly weaved and then carefully unravelled for the big revelations at the end. A totally gripping read.
SUSAN LEWIS
Utterly absorbing
SHARI LAPENA
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
A tightly-woven thriller that races to a conclusion I didn't see coming
NELL PATTISON
Original, unputdownable and a really great read
