She finds herself looking at a scene from a nightmare: in the living room, in the middle of the carpet, there's a woman lying face down in a huge pool of blood. In shock, Connie wakes her husband Kit. But when Kit sits down at the computer to take a look, he sees no dead body, only a pristine beige carpet in a perfectly ordinary room . . .

Review:

Sophie Hannah's excellent psychological thrillers derive much of their appeal from her knack for coming up with the sort of opening situation that instantly puts the reader in the literary equivalent of an armlock . . . Hannah is very good indeed at giving a modern twist to the familiar woman-in-peril theme. * Spectator * Hannah's latest psychological thriller combines quirky police procedural with shrewdly observed domestic deceit. Told with confidence and panache, Hannah challenges the reader to work out who the paranoiac of the piece really is. * Independent * Jaw-droppingly assured. Simon Waterhouse...is destined to be up there with the Poirots, the Marples and the Sherlock Holmeses of detective fiction if Hannah keeps up this standard of writing. This reader was left speechless with admiration. * Daily Express * Sophie Hannah scores on all counts . . . Confidence oozes from every taut chapter . . . Hannah's relish of every delicious twist and tweak is one of the very few things that are clear in this cryptic game of hide and seek. * Scotsman * As addictively creepy as her previous thrillers * Independent on Sunday * A beautifully written and entirely gripping take from beginning to end. * Heat * An assured psychological thriller of murderous domestic deceit. * Financial Times *

But when Kit sits down at the computer to take a look, he sees no dead body, only a pristine beige carpet in a perfectly ordinary room . . . : Review: An assured psychological thriller of murderous domestic deceit. (Financial Times): A beautifully written and entirely gripping take from beginning to end. (Heat): As addictively creepy as her previous thrillers (Independent on Sunday): A writer of prodigious talent . This is a jaw-droppingly assured book which sometimes feels as if there's a plot twist on every page. (Daily Express): Sophie Hannah scores on all counts . . . Confidence oozes from every taut chapter (Scotsman): 'If you're new to the Sophie Hannah phenomenon, let us explain: she's the author of five previous psychological crime thrillers, each of which begins with a cunning premise, which grips like a vice for the rest of the novel, with myriad twists you never see coming . . . another superb mystery in which extraordinary things happen to ordinary people.' ***** (Heat): 'We're huge fans of Hannah's psychological thrillers, and this new one is even more tense and gripping than her previous books.' (Heat): 'Sophie Hannah, the queen of psychological suspense, reigns supreme in her latest taut and terrifying chiller-thriller . . . Hannah is one of Britain's most intelligent and thrilling writers. Her modern-day gothic novels are clever, complex and devilishly plotted with outrageous twists and turns that are guaranteed to confound even the smartest of readers. Expect the unexpected right up to the very last page.' (Lancashire Evening Post): 'Sophie Hannah has rapidly made a name for herself as a purveyor of upmarket psychological thrillers. From the first few pages of LASTING DAMAGE, it's easy to see why.' (Mail on Sunday): 'Hannah is a challenging storyteller and anything but predictable . . . I felt quite bereft on reaching the final page.' (Irish Independent): 'A deeply complex story where nothing is quite what it seems at first glance . . . an engrossing story that had me hooked.' (Eurocrime): 'Sophie Hannah takes her readers on a disquieting ramble through her characters' lives in this unusual psychological mystery thriller.' (Choice): 'She is a cunning creator of crime stories packed with head-scratching twists you don't see coming, and Hitchcock would have loved this modern take on Rear Window . . . It will constantly grip and surprise you.' (Peterborough Evening Telegraph): 'Two things I really love about Sophie Hannah as a writer - she takes really unglamourous day to day things and expands them into genuinely terrifying thrillers, and she is just a master of plot . . . they are extraordinary, proper miss-a-bus-stop type reads.' (BBC Radio 6 Music): 'A writer of prodigious talent . . . This is a jaw-droppingly assured book which sometimes feels as if there's a plot twist on every page . . . This reader was left speechless with admiration . . . a truly sensational book.' (Daily Express): 'Confidence oozes from every taut chapter . . . intelligence shines, the mystery deepens. Hannah's relish of every delicious twist and tweak is one of the very few things that are clear in this cryptic game of hide and seek.' (Scotsman): 'As addictively creepy as her previous thrillers . . . Taking those 3am horrors and turning them into a story that just won't be scrubbed from your mind is quite a gif.
