Editorial Reviews

Review

"Purcell paints a colorful portrait of her tale’s distant time and place and immerses the reader in an era when superstition was a tenacious thread in the social fabric that bound its people. Her tale of secret guilt and atoning for it through ancient customs will please fans of classic gothic melodrama." —Publisher's Weekly

"Purcell excels at creating a spooky Gothic ambience... A dark and unsettling novel for lovers of Rebecca and Jane Eyre." —Kirkus

"Purcell has a sure storytelling touch, a command of atmosphere and a keen eye for the telling details of social history. Oh, and she stores up some satisfying and suitably macabre final revelations." —The Guardian

"A Victorian tale replete with laudanum, tuberculosis and possibly fairies... a clever, creepy read." —Sunday Express, Best New Thrillers

"Brilliantly atmospheric and chilling... I raced through the pages hardly daring to find out what would happen next. Laura’s characters and the world they inhabit are compelling, unsettling and richly drawn. A fabulous tale!" —Ruth Hogan, author of The Keeper of Lost Things

Praise for The Poison Thread


"Uncanny... Satisfying." New York Times Book Review

"[A] well-wrought chiller.” —Wall Street Journal

"Suspenseful... This smart and sophisticated historical thriller will appeal to fans of Sarah Waters’s Fingersmith and Margaret Atwood’s Alias Grace." —Publishers Weekly 

“A dark, gothic story… Purcell alternates character narratives to question motives, reality, and truth on a ‘bumpy’ ride full of violence and death.” —Booklist

"A fascinating mystery that’s rich in disquieting detail and at­mosphere.” BookPage
