Gripping, involving, heartbreaking ... really interesting and thought-provoking on the impact of shame and silence.
Laura Marshall, author of Friend Request
Him is dark, gripping, original and totally heartbreaking. Clare Empson writes like a dream: taut and sophisticated, not a word wasted. I loved this book.

What a wonderful debut! It was dark, addictive and ultimately heart breaking.

Addictive, elegant and pacey writing. Brideshead recalibrated by way of Big Little Lies.

Gripping and kept me guessing - and so emotionally true.

A compelling and unforgettable novel in which silence speaks louder than words and relationships are not what they seem. I was utterly gripped from the first sentence.
