Praise for Sophie Hannah:
"What does motherhood mean? What should a mother do if her child is in danger? . . . It's those choices and their consequences that make "Little Face" compelling."--"The Washington Post"
"As . . . Agatha Christie gleefully trampled on that sacrosanct rule of the mystery novel to 'play fair with the reader, ' the power this novel packs derives from narrators who play fast and loose with what they know. . . . The solution is a stunner."--"The Boston Globe"
"Spine-tingling."--"Romantic Times" (top pick)
"A tautly claustrophobic spiral of a story."--"Kirkus Reviews"
"Clever and original. . . . She has a brilliant new career ahead of her."--"BookPage"
"A splendid crime-psychological thriller. . . . A book so well-plotted and so well-written deserves to have its surprises kept intact."--"St. Louis-Post Dispatch"
"Riveting reading."--"Mystery Scene"
A serial rapist relies on successful career women's shame to insulate him from punishment. Then one of them sets out to find her missing lover, a married man, and in so doing exposes a sinister plot.
Sophie Hannah is an award-winning, best-selling poet in England. Her previous psychological thriller, "Little Face," was an acclaimed bestseller in the United Kingdom, as was "Hurting Distance."

This book started out rather slow and I was about to give up on it but was I glad that I didn't. If you like dark characters this is the book for you. I won't give away any of the plot but I highly recommend this book. Love to hear from any that agree.
