Sam Blake creates unforgettable characters and dark plot twists full of intrigue.  Liz Nugent

Another cracking thriller, delivering a fast-moving, tense and shadowy plot full of unexpected twists and turns, and the palpable sense of danger that is becoming a hallmark of the Cat Connolly books. Lancashire Post

It is rare that I read a book twice. Maybe by accident. I read this book by Sam Blake twice, simply as I wanted to re-capture the exhilaration, the heart-pounding excitement and captivation that made the hairs stand on the back of my neck. Nicola Kearns

Brilliant from start to finish, fast paced plot with plenty of suspense and nail biting drama. A real page turner, can’t wait for the next adventure for Cat Connolly, she’s already become one of my favourite fictional detectives. Geraldine Daly
