Review

'Clever, creepy and compelling' Sharon Bolton, author of The Craftsman

'No-one blends a psychological thriller with a police procedural like this woman.
Captivating! Sinister! Twisty!' Angela Marsons, author of Silent Scream

'Come a Little Closer is
a brilliant crime read. Rachel Abbott is already one of the Queens of Crime, but this dark tale of manipulation, danger and lies adds to her reputation for outstanding storytelling.' Kate Rhodes, author of Hell Bay

'In Come a Little Closer, Abbott's usual high calibre plotting provides everything the reader needs in
a gripping thriller. Satisfying investigation from the ever-lovely Tom Douglas, and a killer twist that makes this one her best yet.' Louise Voss, co author of From the Cradle

'Come A Little Closer is a heart-stopping foray into DCI Tom Douglas' latest investigation. Swathed in suspense and tension,
this thrilling, utterly marvellous book will snatch the breath from its readers and capture their imagination from the very first word of the very first sentence! Wonderful!' - Ronnie Turner, blogger

'The tangled web Rachel Abbott weaves is both intriguing and horrifying and I found myself living this story.
I was totally gripped by it.' Kath Middleton, author and blogger

'What a cracker of a book! Spellbinding. Breath-taking. The pace just builds and builds to the climax giving you a really uneasy feeling in your bones.
And that ending! OMG! What ashocker!' Kim the Bookworm

'Creepy to the core, Rachel Abbott never fails to deliver with her
mind-blowing twists and downright sinister storylines! 5 stars' - Noelle, Crimebookjunkie

'Come A Little Closer is a very twisty mix of dark psychological thriller and intelligent police procedural. Rachel Abbott has created
an intricate web of lies and deceit.' - Victoria Goldman, Off-the-Shelf Books.
