The imaginative command is masterly, the tension unbearable. It grips from first to last
A tightly written story that delves into one of the few real taboos left in our plundered stock
This is, on one level, a brilliant psychological thriller, so tightly plotted that it's hard to put down. But Celyn Jones achieves more than this. Beautifully and allusively written, the novel is a twenty-first century GREAT EXPECTATIONS that touches on the idea of ruptured childhood innocence and the alarming fact that we may never really know the people we love. Noirishly gripping ... one of the most readable novels of the year
It's hard to resist the novel's hypnotic pull.
