Praise for Virginia Andrews:
`Beautifully written, macabre and thoroughly nasty... it is evocative of the nasty fairy tales like Little Red Riding Hood and The Babes in the Wood, with a bit of Victorian Gothic thrown in. ... What does shine through is her ability to see the world through a child's eyes' Daily Express
`Makes horror irresistible' Glasgow Sunday Mail
`A gruesome saga... the storyline is compelling, many millions have no wish to put this down' Ms London
`There is strength in her books - the bizarre plots matched with the pathos of the entrapped' The Times
