Product description


A masterclass in plotting, with twist after twist Sunday Times This utterly gripping thriller should establish her as one of the great unmissables of this genre The Times Beautifully written and precision-engineered to unsettle Guardian A truly gripping thriller Psychologies Sophie Hannah is the new British queen of the psychological thriller Heat Sophie Hannah has become the master, or mistress, of suspense. This one's even better than her others. Each moment is so purely enjoyable. Her genius is that she creates these very real characters - absolutely incredible. She's at the very peak of crime fiction at the moment Simon Mayo Book Programme, Radio Five This book is long but never tedious, and, as with the finest examples of the genre, Hannah refuses to allow the reader any hope of predicting how it will all end until she decides to put the final piece of the jigsaw in place Daily Express It's a difficult tightrope to walk but Hannah does it triumphantly, maintaining the tension until the very end -- Val McDermid The Times Beautifully written and absorbingly chilling, this is a tale that steadily builds in tension, throwing up twists and turns that keep you guessing right up until the very end SHE An intricate and sinister suspense novel Woman & Home A truly gripping thriller Psychologies A complex, unnerving study of relationships ... Her exemplary skills put Hannah right up there with Ruth Rendell Kirkus Reviews This is a monster book in every sense. It is both a chunky psychological thriller and a testamony to the legacy of depravity ... The trademark neuroses that afflict many of Sophie Hannah's characters lead to multiple twists in the plot, while her brilliantly acerbic dialogue lightens this clever but complicated tale Waterstones' Books Quarterly The pages keep turning ... The firm grip of suspense will hold you fast until the thrilling ending Sunday Telegraph A terrific page-turner, one of those really creepy suspense novels with so many twists that it is impossible to guess the ending Bookseller A real chiller; the clever plot will keep you hooked and guessing to the end Choice Hannah, like Rendell and Fremlin before her, takes ordinary domestic setting and turns them into something extraordinary ... THE OTHER HALF LIVES proves that she is an established force to be reckoned with ... a marvellous piece of literary conjuring Crime Squad Magazine Sophie Hannah brings many gifts to crime fiction. She is a poet whose use of language is precise, and her images are evocative. As a novelist, her overriding interests lie in people on the edge and in the relationships that have driven them there TLS --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
