HOME Emma struggles with life's demands when Nina breezes into her world and makes it better - but what does she really want? This tense page-turner will make you look at kindly strangers with suspicion! PRIMA A sharply observed relationship with a sinister plot line of hand-in-the-mouth proportions... psychologically nuanced novel... Lane excels at everyday detail. Emma's total absorption by motherhood is rendered with beautifully stinging observations METRO With a forensic eye for domestic detail, Lane sets up a riveting series of vicious snares SAINSBURY'S MAGAZINE Harriet Lane's first novel Alys, Always was widely praised for combining sharply observed everyday life with something a lot more sinister. Her second now pulls off the same trick with equal aplomb... The result is a novel that becomes increasingly - and at times excruciatingly - tense as it approaches its devastating final chapter READERS DIGEST Harriet Lane's debut, the subtly unsettling Alys Always, was a chilling psychological drama of power privilege and manipulation. In this, her equally compulsive follow-up, similar sinister shenanigans are spun out in Lane's elegant, poetic prose... Unlike conventional thrillers, the perverse pleasure of this compelling novel is not a big reveal but the pin-sharp unpicking of personality -- Eithne Farry SUNDAY EXPRESS Harriet Lane is a deft conjurer of menacing middle class scenarios, and her second novel, a taut revenge drama with a shattering endgame i NEWSPAPER Nina's a control freak, Emma's a mess. What happens when their paths cross - and is it really the first time?

The ultimate frenemy thriller. NOW When frazzled mum Emma encounters sophisticated Nina, she thinks their meeting is down to chance. But, as this cool, controlled thriller reveals, the truth is far more sinister. With wonderfully fleshed out characters, this is a chilling study in revenge. SUNDAY MIRROR Harriet Lane has created a taut, unnerving thriller in Her that will keep you in its hold until the devastating conclusion... Her is a beautifully put together novel which fans of Deborah Levy's Swimming Home or Helen Walsh's The Lemon Grove will enjoy. WE LOVE THIS BOOK Harriet Lane made a memorable debut in 2012 with novel Alys, Always and her second book is another superb psychological thriller... that slowly unfurls, layer by tantalising layer, in this riveting revenge drama HELLO! Emma and Nina inhabit very different words. Unknown to Emma, they have met before... Wangling her way into Emma's home is the easy part - but how can Nina ensure she finally gets her revenge for what happened in the past? BELLA Revenge is, of course, a dish traditionally served cold, and that in a toxic nutshell is the theme of Harriet Lane's deliciously unpleasant second novel, in which she makes of that dish a perfectly plated-up thriller, ideally consumed at one sitting... She has a gimlet eye for domestic minutiae and how they betray us... And rarely has any writer so well nailed the ambivalent feelings and frustrations that attend motherhood. Her is an immensely classy thriller which will have you in its grip to the very final pages -- Caroline Sanderson BOOKOXYGEN.COM Harriet Lane, author of Alys, Always, specialises in scheming women. Her new novel of psychological suspense asks how you can tell when your friend is really your enemy... She's a clever creation, this villainess, like a deadly spider waiting to pounce... One unanswered question keeps the reader gripping that seat-edge... The answer and the novel's outcome do not disappoint THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY Dual narrators and their different perspectives on the same events create a distinctly sinister and uncomfortable atmosphere in this gripping novel. Sympathies and allegiances shift with each chapter, keeping the reader unsettled, yet hooked...

She is so so clever and has produced a very intelligent psychological thriller... Her is a brilliant read - Bravo! it is distinctive in its domesticity and its missing formulaic elements: a violence-free psychological thriller in which the victim doesn't even know there is a threat. SUNDAY TIMES A downtrodden mother-of-two, Emma's life is made infinitely more exciting when she meets intoxicating artist Nina. They have met before, only Emma doesn't remember. A series of petty acts turn nasty as Nina wreaks her revenge in a sharp but drawn out thriller DAILY TELEGRAPH This is a particular type of thriller, done beautifully. It's quiet and sinister and has the feel of Patricia Highsmith and Barbara Vine. Very clever, very gripping. EVENING STANDARD
