The First Cut Reviews

[A] suspenseful Hitchcockian tale ... [one of the] top ten crime books to take on holiday Telegraph Top notch suspense! From first page to last, Knight delivers as she plunges an ordinary married couple into a steadily growing horror of past lies, fresh betrayals and murderous revenge. Lisa Gardner 'It is some time since I have been so completely absorbed and taken out of myself ... This is Ali Knight's second book and it is hard to imagine how she can beat it, but I hope to goodness that she does! The resourceful self-reliance of the imperilled heroine Nicky ... the large cast and complicated happenings make an intriguing ... read and Ali Knight writes well. Literary Review This thriller will have you on the edge of your seat desperate to read more. Perfect for fans of James Patterson ... I was left completely shocked with the twist at the end. Praise for WINK MURDER : Jo Nesbo, Stephen King, Patricia Cornwell and Ali Knight Independent Books of the Year 2011 A tight-plotted, too-close-for-comfort thriller that races to the finish. Pacey and disquieting, Knight's debut hints she might be a successor to Sophie Hannah's queen of suspense crown. Stylist Book of the Week 'A really enjoyable read.' Martina Cole 'Knight's promising debut ... crackles from first page to last ... She could be very good indeed.' Daily Mail 'Tightly-plotted, high-pitched psychological thriller ... what bright new talent Ali Knight does so successfully, and with a welcome fresh eye, is broach the great divide between public and private space.' **** Daily Mirror 'A fast-paced whodunit.' Woman and Home 'A psychological drama that grips from first to last' Choice
