Reviews

Clever, compelling and chillingly plausible, Payday is a deftly plotted thriller that ratchets up the tension right until the final couldn't-see-it-coming twist.
ELLERY LLOYD
Fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train will inhale this in one sitting, as I did
JESSICA FELLOWES
I think every working woman will relate to this story. I was enraged in places and cheering certain characters on, then questioning my own judgement. An intelligent, thought-provoking and highly topical story with some great twists.
ALLIE REYNOLDS
With complex female characters spiralling out of control, Payday is tense, full of twists, and impossible to put down
HELEN FIELDING
Seductive. Intelligent. Should have a 'must read' advisory on it
JANE CORRY
Sensational. Full of twists and turns and ambushes that keep you guessing up until the very last page. PAYDAY is the best book you will read all year about where men and women are right now.
Tony Parsons
A satisfyingly nuanced take on the #MeToo novel . . . fearless, stylish, suspenseful and immensely entertaining
