Read just a few of the hot reviews In a Dark Dark Wood is receiving...

‘If the premise might be the sort that Agatha Christie would have toyed with had she been a 21st-century graduate, Ware’s analysis of the power-games some women revel in – and the toxicity in the undertow of some female friendships – is more reminiscent of Sophie Hannah, Christobel Kent, or even Gillian Flynn and Harriet Lane’ INDEPENDENT

‘This is one of the hottest crime debuts around, one that does for friendship what Gone Girl did for marriage’  NET GALLEY

‘In a Dark, Dark Wood is going to be, without any doubt, this year’s hottest crime novel. I challenge anyone not to finish this book on toxic female friendships in one sitting’ NEEL MUKHERJEE

‘Toxic friendships, an isolated house, a dark snowy wood... Everyone's worst nightmare, and the perfect ingredients for this tense, terrifying novel’  Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go

 ‘I raced through this, totally unable to put it down. It’s gripping from start to finish: slick plotting, sharp twists and a pitch-perfect understanding of the many unique ways in which female friends hurt one another. Dark, smart and compulsive’ Nicci Cloke, author of Lay Me Down
