Editorial Reviews

'An exciting, dark novel about friendship; brutally truthful and raw.' - Adele Parks'This was clever, relentless and utterly recognisable. I absolutely loved it!' - Katie Fforde'Very occasionally, a novel that's not in the crime genre grips me as much as the best thrillers do. The People at Number 9 held me in its vice-like grip from first page to last. It's a fascinating analysis of an unhealthy friendship based on insecurity and delusion, and the characters are so vividly drawn that I sympathised with them and despaired of them in equal measure.' - Sophie Hannah'Excruciating yet unputdownable, this is domestic noir at its most gripping.' - Woman & Home'A cautionary tale of what happens when you get caught up with the in-crowd. razor sharp dialogue, detail straight out of a Sunday supplement and a gimlet eye for social comedy. The characters and the games they play are instantly recognisable to anyone who has stood at the school gates and felt slightly out of place. I gulped it down quicker than a dirty Martini.' - Veronica Henry'Beady insights into female friendship. Irresistible, excruciating and unputdownable.' - Fanny Blake'Incisively witty, painfully true. draws the reader in with the voyeuristic joy of gossiping about our friends and neighbours, with a shocking sting in the tail to catch us all out.' - Samantha King'I LOVED it. Such an unsettling read, with a whole grass-is-greener vibe that makes it really quite creepy. The People at Number 9 has a really voyeuristic feel - like spying on your neighbours through a window. Perfect reading for a cold, dark night!' - Lisa Hall
