Review

'I devoured The Shape of Lies. Full of intrigue, secrets and compelling sub-plots that intertwine to a devastating and heart-stopping finish.' Mel Sherratt, bestselling author

Praise for Rachel Abbott 

'The queen of psychological thrillers' - Fabulous Magazine 

'A dark, extremely readable, well-plotted psychological thriller.' - The Times 

'There's a clever twist, which Abbott carefully unveils... it's easy to see why readers kept coming back for this author's thrills.' - The Observer

I was hooked from the first page, it was absolutely brilliant ... The twists came so quickly I almost got whiplash (Jenny Blackhurst The Foster Child)

I loved it! It's 
a breathless tour de force that left me hungry for more. I loved the strong female characters, atmospheric Cornish setting and the truly surprising ending. Psychological crime writing at its very best. (Kate Rhodes Crossbones Yard)

Really gripping and menacing - 
compulsive reading (Harriet Tyce Blood Orange)

What a storyteller Rachel Abbott is... I was 
hooked from the start (Cara Hunter Close to Home)

I raced through this 
compelling, twisty novel. Loved it (Laura Marshall Friend Request)

Rachel Abbott is one of my favourite authors, and I'm reminded why every time I pick up one of her books... 
And So It Begins is an unnerving, twisting tale that you won't be able to put down (Caroline Mitchell Silent Victim)

A truly 
compelling, twisty, enthralling and satisfying read... Absolutely AMAZING! (Angela Marsons Evil Games)

With 
And So It Begins, Rachael Abbott has delivered another intricately plotted thriller that never falters on tension or pace ... the suspense doesn't let up until the very last page (Michelle Davies Gone Astray)

The definition of addictive - Rachel Abbott's best book yet. Kept me up until the small hours - and you won't see the ending coming (Phoebe Morgan The Doll House)
