LIE WITH ME's Sabine Durrant is back with another twisty, turny, unputdownable thriller you'll want to make room for in your suitcase. TAKE ME IN is the perfect beach read. * Grazia * Brilliantly plotted with a story that cranks up with every page. You'll want to down this in one. * Fabulous Magazine * From the bestselling author of the excellent Lie With Me comes this even more sinister thriller. This class act of a novel is unputdownable. * Heat * Sabine Durrant writes fabulous endings. This novel has a belter. Along the way, she tears into competitive pretensions of the yummy mummies of South-West London and her success in nailing their deep shallows is one of the book's joys... (a) gloriously unexpected and explosive conclusion in this wonderful combination of social satire and psychological drama. * Daily Mail * I opened the book after breakfast and looked up again at three, wondering where the day had gone. Sabine Durrant is a master at turning the secret anxieties everyone holds into page-turning, nail-biting drama. -- Erin Kelly I loved it. Sabine Durrant skewers her characters' foibles with a merciless pen, combining page-turning tension with the blackest of black humour. I couldn't put it down -- JP Delaney, bestselling author of The Girl Before Highly entertaining... Read it for the smart dissection of modern life and love * Mail on Sunday * Gripping, chilling, perfectly nuanced. No one does creepy moral ambiguity quite like Sabine Durrant -- Tammy Cohen An assured, confident psychological thriller that is rich with menace. The tension and suspense tighten their grip so subtly you'll be holding your breath by the end. -- C.L. Taylor Excruciatingly tense and impossible to put down, TAKE ME IN is one of the best psychological thrillers I've ever read. I'll be amazed if a better book is published in 2018. -- Mark Edwards, author of The Retreat. A seductive descent into paranoia and claustrophobia that coils around you like a snake and squeezes until you are breathless -- Chris Brookmyre A heart-thumping thriller about a dream family that suddenly finds itself living a nightmare. Sabine Durrant writes about the wrong turns that we can take, and the fragility of even the happiest life, and how all we love can slip from our grasp. Take Me In is smart, brilliant - and scary as hell -- Tony Parsons I raced through Take Me In, watching in horror and recognition as a couple turn themselves inside out through fear, assumption and regret. I couldn't look away as they fell for the lies we often tell ourselves, with terrifying results. Sabine Durrant's writing just gets better and better -- Holly Seddon Take Me In is utterly addictive. With a relentless momentum, this is a fascinating look at how cracks within relationships can turn the world on its head -- Emma Kavanagh No one writes about the frailty of human relationships quite as well as Sabine Durrant, and the depth of her social observation is matched only by her ability to have you turning pages - I gulped it down like air! -- Sarah Hilary TAKE ME IN is another beautifully written page turner from the pen of Sabine Durrant. Bravo. -- Cass Green I absolutely loved it. Intriguing, compelling and ultimately surprising, it's a wonderful skewering of the middle classes and an astute examination of how a crisis can trigger unimagined consequences. A joy to read and full of deliciously flawed characters. -- Liz Nugent A gripping and compelling exploration of a marriage under threat. Acutely observed and taut with suspense, TAKE ME IN is a page-turning novel by one of the masters of psychological suspense -- Lucy Clarke Unbearably tense and claustrophobic... Sabine Durrant is at the top of her game right now. -- Paula Daly, author of The Trophy Child. Extraordinary. Dark and compelling but completely relatable. -- Caz Frear, author of Sweet Little Lies. Beautifully written, clever and so gripping, with increasing tension and menace until the heart-stopping explosive finale. I couldn't put it down and I now can't stop thinking about that ending! Brilliant! -- Claire Douglas A gripping and twisty read that forces us to constantly re-evaluate what we think we know. I loved it. -- Jenny Blackhurst Paranoia at its most creepy... A menacing tale that shines a whole new light on the kindness of strangers. This book will have you jumping in your seat. -- Michelle Frances Durrant is razor-sharp at pinpointing social mores and holding them up for cross-examination. A page-turning thriller full of threat and suspense. -- Julia Crouch A fabulous, intelligent read from the hideously unsettling first chapter onwards - Durrant really is the queen of suspense. -- Lucy Atkins One of the best writers on the scene. A delicious meld of page-turning tension and squirming in one's seat at her acute observations of the social discomforts wrought by the British class system. -- Alex Marwood No one dissects middle-class fears like Sabine Durrant. TAKE ME IN is another gripping triumph, with characters drawn from life and breathtaking suspense. -- Claire McGowan An addictive and dark novel about damaged people and human fallibility, it's a completely compelling page turner. -- Debbie Howells, author of The Bones of You No one builds tension like Sabine Durrant, and no one has her gift for creating characters who are sympathetic and monstrous at the same time. The shadow of impending disaster hangs over the whole novel but I couldn't begin to predict how that disaster would unfold. It's also a brilliantly clear-eyed depiction of parenthood, marriage, privilege and pretension, with deft understanding of the lies people tell themselves and others. Totally compelling. -- Jane Casey, author of Let the Dead Speak A sinister, suspenseful thriller. * Red Magazine * Gripping * Good Housekeeping * I absolutely LOVED it - it's her best yet. -- India Knight An ingeniously plotted drama with an ending you won't see coming. * Good Housekeeping * Writing an assured, nuanced thriller that plays with recognisable tropes (holiday setting, couple under siege, inexplicable stranger/stalker) without descending into cliche is no mean feat. For pure psychological suspense, Sabine Durrant doesn't mess around: she's a cool, confident writer who knows exactly how to get into your psyche. Need a reminder of what makes thrillers great? Read this. * Emerald Street * I absolutely adored Sabine's book! She is such a clever lady - I barely put it down. -- Isabelle Broom A clever, sinister and compelling page-turner. * Woman & Home * The underlying menace and tension coupled with an ingenious plot make this a superb psychological thriller * Candis Magazine * Picture the scene: a hot beach, a struggling child (YOUR struggling child), a heroic stranger. You'd be grateful, wouldn't you? But would you be grateful enough? That's the premise behind Take Me In, the newest - and best so far, IMHO - of Sabine Durrant's ingeniously twisty thrillers. It's taken Durrant a few years to work her way to the top of the psychological thriller pile, but now she's there, she's not budging for anyone. * The Pool * This story sweeps you away on a tide of menace, building up almost unbearable suspense to an explosive conclusion. Fabulous stuff from one of our finest thriller writers. * Sunday Mirror * The book is lifted above the ruck of domestic thrillers by the quality of Durrant's writing and characterisations. * Daily Telegraph * Exquisitely gifted at nuanced characterisation. And even more so at plots. -- Marian Keyes, author of The Break (Durrant) has a ruthlessly sharp eye for the vanities of modern urbanites * Grazia *
