'Brilliantly unnerving ... expertly crafted' Sunday Times, Thriller of the Month 'Jackson raises the stakes again and again' Guardian 'Finely paced, shrewdly observed ... Mother May I is a thinking (and feeling) reader's thriller' Wall Street Journal It's every mother's worst nightmare. 'If you ever want to see your baby again, GO HOME. Tell no one. Do not call the police. Do not call your husband. Be at your house by 5:15 PM. Or he's gone for good...' To get her son back alive, Bree must complete one small but critical task. It seems harmless enough, but this one action comes with a devastating price.

Praise for Joshilyn Jackson 'Jackson writes the kind of book that will set even the most blameless on edge, leaving us to wonder who might know our imperfect histories' Christina Dalcher 'A master of domestic suspense' Entertainment Weekly 'Wonderful - suspense and surprises, real characters and a scary, ominous backbeat' Lee Child

Mother May I Reviews

Jackson follows her brilliantly unnerving Never Have I Ever with another battle of wits between a manipulative criminal and her victim ... Bree and Marshall's twin narratives sustain the unrelenting tension all the way to a double denouement; yet this is much more than an expertly crafted entertainment, as its themes include class, sexual consent and misogyny -- Thriller of the Month * Sunday Times *
Jackson crafts a finely paced, shrewdly observed, multi-tiered story which moves with ease between past and present. Older events that prompt current actions are uncovered; pressing issues of class, race and sexual abuse are viscerally dramatized. Mother May I is a thinking (and feeling) reader's thriller, a literary beach read * Wall Street Journal *
Joshilyn Jackson does it again with this explosive, white-knuckle read about a mother who will stop at nothing to protect her family. Terrifying, timely and thought-provoking, I couldn't tear my eyes away from Mother May I -- Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of 'The Other Mrs'
Mother May I sets a new standard for the genre: it's razor-sharp, merciless and masterful -- Rose Carlyle, author of 'The Girl in the Mirror'
Starts with a bang and doesn't let up, asking how well you truly know the people around you - and how far you're willing to go for the ones you love -- Megan Miranda, author of 'All the Missing Girls'
Addictive domestic suspense * Parade *
A smart, original thriller with a chilling reveal -- Praise for 'Never Have I Ever', Clare Mackintosh
Jackson raises the stakes again and again -- Praise for 'Never Have I Ever' * Guardian *
Absolutely immaculately done, to be read in one breathless sitting -- Praise for 'Never Have I Ever', India Knight
One hell of a thriller -- Praise for 'Never Have I Ever' * Heat *
