Customer Reviews

Bovey Hannah ,

Loved this book!

This book centres on an unbelievable idea and yet the author cleverly makes it seem possible through the use of historical references and references to actual events. It is a strangely compelling book (perhaps bare words really do exist and were hidden in the book...), I will definitely be reading more by the author.

DungworthDaz ,

Intelligent, psychological thriller.

In my top 5 for this year. Very well written. Interesting themes that are incredibly relevant to what's happening in modern times. Cannot recommend this book enough.
