Praise for THE DARK ROSE:
“Everything we love in a thriller—obsessive passion, haunting secrets, a shocking ending—is here, set among the creepily atmospheric ruins of a 16th century English garden."
—O, The Oprah Magazine
“With its rich intertwining of viewpoints and time frames, its nuances of character and class, its sustained suspense . . . this harrowing novel is a work of true talent.”
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
“[Kelly] draws readers in with her compelling stories; then, she dims the lights, darkens the worldview and bolts the exit doors. . . . It’s useless to resist: You must read it.”
—Maureen Corrigan, NPR.org
“Erin Kelly has delivered a stunning look at human desperation, loyalty, and absolute terror. . . . First class writing that is absolutely captivating!”
Praise for THE BURNING AIR:
“Erin Kelly is a seriously good writer, and this gripping novel is her best yet. I really loved it—couldn't put it down!”
Praise for THE POISON TREE:
“A terrific suspense debut, reminiscent of another British woman’s auspicious bow: Daphne DuMaurier’s Rebecca. The shadows gather until the ending looms like a threatening figure. This one gets the writer’s ultimate bit of praise: I wish I had written it.”
“A compelling creeper . . . More please, Ms. Kelly! Quickly!”
—The Washington Post
“There is a brooding sense of impending doom and imminent danger. . . . [T]he explosive ending, its revelations about the threesome and the lengths to which people will go to preserve or take what's theirs, makes THE POISON TREE a rich and satisfying pleasure.”
