Recensioner i media

One of the best books I read this year: The suspense keeps the pages flying, but what sets this one apart is the palpable sense of onrushing doom * Stephen King, 'The Best Books I Read This Year', Entertainment Weekly * A rundown seaside amusement park provides the backdrop for Marwood's memorable first novel . . . Marwood fills this disturbing thriller with sordid red herrings and brutal reflections * Publishers Weekly * Original, thought-provoking and utterly brilliant * The Sun * The Wicked Girls is ingenious and original -- a novel that surprises and rewards its readers, delivering a twist of an ending that I never saw coming, then realised it was the only ending that could truly satisfy. Real, chilling, true to its world and its characters. In short, a knock-out * Laura Lippman * In The Wicked Girls, debut author Alex Marwood's taut crime story poses bigger questions about tabloid witch hunts and the nature of evil * Good Housekeeping * I devoured The Wicked Girls over one weekend and loved it. I held my breath during the last few chapters * Erin Kelly * The best thriller I've read since Sister. Taut, gritty and utterly compelling * Lisa Jewell * The Wicked Girls is utterly compelling. It's psychologically rich, complex and masterfully plotted. I couldn't put it down, even when I sensed it was taking me somewhere very dark indeed. I can't wait to see what Alex Marwood comes up with next * Jojo Moyes * Having read it and devoured every page, I really wish I'd written it! It was cleverly plotted and pacy, with all the storylines thundering towards a final, gripping conclusion. I loved it * Elizabeth Haynes * Genuinely disturbing and emotionally unsettling, The Wicked Girls is irresistible * Val McDermid *
