Erin Kelly is a freelance journalist and the acclaimed author of The Poison Tree and The Dark Rose. She lives with her family in North London.Review:
“Erin Kelly is a seriously good writer, and this gripping novel is her best yet. I really loved it—couldn't put it down!”
“The Burning Air is a clever, creepy exploration of the deceit hidden even within the most apparently loving of families and the very fine line between justice and revenge. Erin Kelly is brilliant at showing the relentlessness of obsession and the evil that can be done in the name of love.”
—Elizabeth Haynes, author of Into the Darkest Corner
“In a strong field, Kelly is among the strongest. Her formidable control of plot twist and character keep you gripped, unsure of the outcome, until the bitter end.”
—Alex Marwood, author of The Wicked Girls
“A classic dark thriller combining suspense with gorgeous, evocative prose. . . . With writing so seductive and multiple voices that are pitch-perfect for the characters she’s created, Kelly shows that she is a writer who doesn’t need to keep repeating herself to stay in the game. A book that will consume the reader as fully as the bonfire set by the novel’s characters.”
“Tension-filled . . . skillfully drawn characters and masterful building of suspense, which reaches a literally searing climax."
