Praise for Colette McBeth: 'Colette McBeth delivers twists and shocks with superb timing. An impressive debut'
The Times
'An excellent storyteller... Precious Thing is more than deserving of a place on the modern thriller bookshelf'
Sunday Express
'An interesting and original page-turner'
Literary Review
'A cleverly crafted tale... If you're a fan of Gone Girl, you'll love this'
Sunday Mirror
'Precious Thing is one of my top five books of 2013. Truthfully, I would go on for hours about what I loved about this psychologically disturbing, thoroughly readable, cleverly written book'
'A great debut, menacing, gripping and full of twists and surprises... This is one of those incredibly compelling stories that simply drags you along, whether you like it or not. Highly recommended'
One of the best books of the year
This intriguing and twisty thriller kept me reading into the night
Woman & Home
A creepy and clever thriller
McBeth's is a much better realisation of the same theme [as The Lovely Bones] and, psychologically, by far the more interesting accomplishment
If a more affecting psychological thriller is published this year, it will be a very good book indeed
Irish Times
The Life I Left Behind is a rare thing; a well-paced, meticulously-researched thriller which is not just gripping but compassionate, too
Paula Hawkins, author of THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN
Absolutely amazing. Grip-Lit of the highest order. Brilliant.
Marian Keyes
Exceptional...so beautifully written and a gripping story
Clare Mackintosh, author of I LET YOU GO
