Powerfully atmospheric, unguessably twisty.
dark, fascinating and full of surprises
Original, compelling and unsettling. I loved it.
Atmospheric and beautifully-written. A deadly game of cat-and-mouse at the edge of the world.
I'm a huge Sharon Bolton fan, and this is her best yet
Nail-biting, heart-pounding suspense that leaps from one dizzying twist to another. THE SPLIT grips like permafrost.
THE SPLIT is terrific: vivid, tense and superbly paced. A masterclass in using the setting to drive the plot, in Cambridge and icy South Georgia. Highly recommended.
extremely entertaining [with] characters who have relationships that work
Bolton's depiction of this stark, beautiful, remote wilderness is a balm to the soul in these restricted times and her complicated mystery a welcome diversion from reality.
A compulsive page-turner
The remoteness of the location bestows a sense of brooding tension, which is coupled to heart-stopping action sequences, making this into an extraordinary thriller. This is intelligent crime writing at its very best; not to be missed.
Atmospheric [...], a dark and disturbing page-turner.
This dark tale has more than a few twists and turns to keep you guessing.
A page-turner full of shock twists.
I love Sharon Bolton's book and this [...] isolated landscape of the South Atlantic she writes about so well
