'Emotional and sensitive, populated with wonderfully real characters, but also underscored by menace which races towards a heart-in-the-mouth denouement.' Gillian McAllister, author of EVERYTHING BUT THE TRUTH 'THE SECOND SISTER is both a twisty thriller and a sensitively written story of a family stricken by loss and the fear of not knowing the worst. The strife between the remaining sister and her mother especially is depicted with heart-rending warmth and insight.' Isabelle Grey, author of THE BAD MOTHER 'Marvelously tension-filled storytelling' New York Times 'A thriller with intelligence and a high creep factor, a genre that's difficult to get just right...Claire Kendal's version comes close to perfection' The Toronto Star PRAISE FOR THE BOOK OF YOU: 'Any thriller that has you checking over your shoulder and peeking from behind your curtains must be gripping so hats off to Claire Kendal's hard-hitting debut THE BOOK OF YOU for doing just this' Stylist 'Both brutal and unbearably tense, THE BOOK OF YOU announces the arrival of a fierce new talent, a writer not afraid to grasp a woman's fears in stark detail and to invoke nightmares' Daily Mail 'Clever, claustrophobic and chillingly good' Good Housekeeping 'THE BOOK OF YOU starts with breathtaking brilliance and then just gets better with every page. Already my book of the year' Elizabeth Haynes, author of INTO THE DARKEST CORNER 'Gripping with some very smart twists' Woman Magazine 'A gripping read!' Closer 'Addictive ... I literally hardly breathed as I raced to the end. It's a terrifying thriller' Samantha Hayes, author of UNTIL YOU'RE MINE 'Creepy and compelling. What happens when the wrong guy won't take no for an answer?' Paula Daly, author of JUST WHAT KIND OF MOTHER ARE YOU?
