Powerfully atmospheric, unguessably twisty. * Elly Griffiths * dark, fascinating and full of surprises * Mark Edwards * I love Sharon Bolton's book and this twisty tale takes us back to the spooky isolated landscape of the South Atlantic she writes about so well * Claire McGowan * Original, compelling and unsettling. I loved it. * Rachel Abbott * Atmospheric and beautifully-written. A deadly game of cat-and-mouse at the edge of the world. * Erin Kelly * I'm a huge Sharon Bolton fan, and this is her best yet * Lee Child * Nail-biting, heart-pounding suspense that leaps from one dizzying twist to another. THE SPLIT grips like permafrost. * JP Delaney * THE SPLIT is terrific: vivid, tense and superbly paced. A masterclass in using the setting to drive the plot, in Cambridge and icy South Georgia. Highly recommended. * Jane Casey * extremely entertaining [with] characters who have relationships that work -- Natasha Cooper * Literary Review * Bolton's depiction of this stark, beautiful, remote wilderness is a balm to the soul in these restricted times and her complicated mystery a welcome diversion from reality. -- Alison Flood * The Observer, New Review * A compulsive page-turner * Prima * The remoteness of the location bestows a sense of brooding tension, which is coupled to heart-stopping action sequences, making this into an extraordinary thriller. This is intelligent crime writing at its very best; not to be missed. * SHOTS eMag * Atmospheric [...], a dark and disturbing page-turner. * Choice Magazine * This dark tale has more than a few twists and turns to keep you guessing. -- Lisa Howells * Crime Monthly * A page-turner full of shock twists. * Bella Magazine *
