Editorial Reviews

Review

"A sultry, gorgeously written and hugely atmospheric thriller with a dark, compelling mystery at its heart."―Lucy Foley, New York Times bestselling author of The Hunting Party

"An ambitious, challenging, and ultimately deeply rewarding novel."
Booklist

"S.J. Watson fans will want to check this one out."―Publishers Weekly

"Outstanding. An absolute page-turner."―Rosie Walsh, New York Times bestselling author of Ghosted

"Tense and deliciously atmospheric, it unravels a mother-daughter relationship with a growing sense of menace. A gripping and thoroughly enjoyable read."
Emma Rous, author of The Au Pair

"Sultry, atmospheric and unsettling -- a book to lose yourself in this summer."
Erin Kelly, author of He Said/She Said and The Poison Tree

"I couldn't stop reading this book. The writing is rich and multi-layered, but it's the subtlety of the characterizations that hook you and won't let you go. A taut and stunning novel!"―Gill Paul, bestselling author of The Secret Wife

"Kate Riordan takes the summer thriller to the next level with The Heatwave. Mesmeric writing, beguiling characters and a plot that will make your blood run cold."―Veronica Henry, author of How to Find Love in a Bookshop

"A story that draws you in instantly and really doesn't loosen its grip, right up until the last little twist on the final page."―Iona Grey, author The Glittering Hour
