    " I loved this book.I felt like I was in the house with them. She is such a great writer "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rose | 2/11/2014

    " Uncompromising 21st century realism. Brilliant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jo | 2/8/2014

    " Gripping thriller about a riot on an english council estate, triggered by the revelation that a paedophile has been moved there and the news that a young girl has gone missing. A young GP gets involved when she is called to visit a patient and is then held hostage. Some of the later parts of the plot got a bit confusing and many of the interesting characters were left hanging but I still thought it was pretty good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jack Goodstein | 2/3/2014

    " British low income estate blows up when it is learned that pedophiles have been housed withing, tied to the kidnapping of a ten year old girl. Example of what used to be called the group hero. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashleigh | 2/1/2014

    " A great book that you won't want to put down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 1/28/2014

    " Book was kinda drawn out and long at points, too many characters for me to keep track of at times but overall not a bad book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mickie | 1/21/2014

    " The mystery takes place in the London projects. Fascinating, Fresh, important. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe | 1/19/2014

    " Probably my favorite by her. Violence breaks out when a small girl goes missing on an English housing project. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shannon | 1/18/2014

    " Horrible writing and a plot that was made for a bad tv movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susanna | 1/7/2014

    " I can't say I enjoyed Acid Row, but it kept me spellbound. I finished it in a day while on holiday. Paedophilia is always a touchy subject - add disaffected youth growing up in an estate in the UK and you have a volatile mix! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marianne | 12/2/2013

    " Don't knopw if it was a mystery or a novel or? But a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert Colquhoun | 12/1/2013

    " Page turner!!! Loved the characters and couldn't wait to find out what happened to them and/or what they did next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 11/22/2013

    " The suspense keeps you hooked until the end of the novel, but I preferred The Wave and the Echo. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate Read | 11/22/2013

    " Fantastic exploration of how people react when they believe their community is threatened by a paedophile. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pauline | 11/21/2013

    " Read a few of this authors books and have enjoyed them but would say that this is the best up to now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 10/27/2013

    " Loved this book! A real nail biter. It took me into an unfamiliar world, that of a housing estate (similar to a ghetto) in the outer boroughs of London, England. The suspense builds and builds, backed up by a sequence of events which is utterly logical. I recommend it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ulla | 8/1/2013

    " This one was really scary! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne-marie Coonan | 5/23/2013

    " A re-read, loved it again. Simple, enthralling thriller. Not as good as Agatha Christie, but that's a very high bar to judge by. You'll enjoy the read if you get it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carol-ann | 5/19/2013

    " Hated this book, read on holiday and found it too disturbing. Feel the author lives in a middle class bubble and has a very warbed idea of people who may live on housing schemes. As for the hero of the story.....really, and don't getting started on the cute Hollywood ending! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Farquharson | 4/24/2013

    " This is one of the best books ever. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lisette | 3/26/2013

    " I finished this book a while ago but did not enjoyed the subject matter. It deals with the very depressing world of drug traffic/selling/using and it is very raw when describing what goes on. It is probably very realistic, certainly very depressing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alison | 1/27/2013

    " loved this book read it in one sitting "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zala | 11/11/2012

    " This is the best one I read by this author, though I really love everything she writes. I recommend it to everyone, not just to crime novels fans, because it's different and special in so many ways. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hayley | 9/23/2012

    " I love minette Walters but this is a particularly good one.I couldn't put it down "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 8/31/2012

    " really enjoyed this. I liked the social implications for the family as well as a fast moving narrative "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 8/1/2012

    " Really did not think I was going to like this book... It was excellent. I wouldn't call it an easy read not a pick up put down book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monica | 7/30/2012

    " It was good, but sometimes a hard book to follow, lots of jumping around. "
