Unsettling and absorbing * Observer, THRILLER OF THE MONTH * A haunting debut... an unflinching examination of the kind of men who prey on vulnerable young women. * Sunday Times Crime Book of the Month * I really enjoyed The Silver Road. There's a haunting, intoxicating atmosphere throughout, intensified by the never ending Nordic daylight, which is in stark contrast to the darkness of the families the story follows. A great read. * Ali Land, author of Good Me Bad Me * A stunning read. Beautifully written and utterly haunting. * Jo Spain, author of The Confession * I lost the whole weekend to Lelle and Meja and couldn't have loved it more. Deeply affecting and full of heart, yet a dark, despairing page-turner. A very impressive debut. * Chris Whitaker, author of All the Wicked Girls * I love everything about this book. Stina Jackson has mastered the art of combining suspense with literary depth. It's oh so beautiful, wistful and well written. * Lina Bengtsdotter, author of For the Missing * Beautifully written, haunting and intense. * Sunday Times Crime Club * Jackson has the confidence to deliver a thoughtful, patiently told story in which there are no conventional genre heroes, just ordinary people struggling to cope with their respective tragedies. * Irish Times * A masterclass in evocative sadness, loneliness and redemption, told in a sensitive and captivating style. The author beautifully portrays the pain of losing a child and the conviction that truth must be found, however devastating it might be... vivid and powerful... tense, atmospheric. * Ewa Sherman, Crime Review * With its haunting, lyrical prose, this story of love, loss, hope, obsession and redemption, although at times desperately sad and melancholic, captured my imagination from the start - a remarkably assured debut novel. * NB Magazine, Linda Hepworth's Books of the Year 2019 *
