Kate McQuaile writes fascinatingly flawed characters and domestic noir beautifully. The topic may be dark but the writing is so lyrical, you won't want to stop reading
Jo Spain
Broken Flowers is both twisty and empathetic. I love how Kate McQuaile's two unreliable narrators each vie for sympathy, and how, in a battle for psychological survival, no one tells the whole truth, even to themselves
Isabelle Grey
A gripping family tale, moving easily from seventies London to the present day, chock full of twists and turns
Andrea Carter
Everything you want in a thriller
Emma Flint, author of Little Deaths
A fast-paced read
A twisty tale
Good Housekeeping
Elegant, clever and totally convincing
Sunday Mirror
Broken Flowers is a dark, propulsive novel that had me hooked from the first line. No one does twisted families like Kate McQuaile
Jack Jordan
A narrative that moves between 1970s London and today, a decades-old mystery, family secrets and a very flawed narrator - I loved this
