Utterly absorbing
SHARI LAPENA
Twelve Secrets is a smart, satisfying, one-of-a-kind thriller that entertained me from start to finish. It examines the confluence of family loyalties and dark secrets while keeping the plot boiling.
JAMES PATTERSON
Original, unputdownable and a really great read
KATIE FFORDE
What a tangled web! Brilliantly weaved and then carefully unravelled for the big revelations at the end. A totally gripping read.
SUSAN LEWIS
A tightly-woven thriller that races to a conclusion I didn't see coming
NELL PATTISON
A pacey thriller full of twists and turns. You won't be able to put TWELVE SECRETS down until the very end.
KARIN SLAUGHTER
Absolutely addictive. An unforgettable and nuanced cast of characters, a claustrophobic setting, and a suspenseful and chilling examination of the dark and destructive power of secrets. You will sleep with your eyes open after reading this one.
GILLY MACMILLAN
I adored TWELVE SECRETS - It was so much twisty-turny fun and I loved the characters and how their secrets unravelled. It's a fast-paced, utterly gripping thriller - a definite twelve out of ten!
VANESSA SAVAGE
Twelve Secrets is rather special. So clever, so engrossing, a genuine 'just one more page' kind of book
M. W. CRAVEN
Ominous at the beginning, breathless by the end ... this is excellent hardcore suspense
LEE CHILD
Fast-paced and brimming with superb characters. I couldn't put it down for a single second. Twelve stars!
