Praise for C.L. Taylor:
‘Tense, twisty, terrifying – with one of the best premises I’ve read in ages.’ Julie Cohen
‘I lost my entire weekend to it! What an absolutely cracking read…pacy, well written, and anxiety inducing.’ Lisa Hall
‘The Fear is a compulsive read, that forces the reader to consider just how far they would go to protect themselves and those around them. I could not put this book down!’ Emma Kavanagh
‘It’s a close call as the bar’s set so high but this has to be C.L. Taylor’s best yet. SO entertaining, high on the shock-factor and yet totally ‘real’.’ Caz Frear
‘The Fear covers very dark territory, but it is handled realistically and sensitively through her excellent writing…Fantastically plotted and perfectly paced, this dark thriller gets a standing ovation from me.’ S.J.I. Holliday
‘A disturbing and all too real story that tests your own morals as you quickly flick through the pages. Dark, claustrophobic realism – I was completed gripped.’ Mel Sherratt
