A pacey thriller full of twists and turns. You won't be able to put TWELVE SECRETS down until the very end.
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.
What a tangled web! Brilliantly weaved and then carefully unravelled for the big revelations at the end. A totally gripping read.
Twelve Secrets is rather special. So clever, so engrossing, a genuine 'just one more page' kind of book
Fast-paced and brimming with superb characters. I couldn't put it down for a single second. Twelve stars!
Ominous at the beginning, breathless by the end ... this is excellent hardcore suspense
