"A masterly psychological thriller...The foibles, fears and strengths of each fully realized character all come into play and affect their judgment. In short, they are people the reader will care about." --Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
Praise for the novels of Louise Phillips
"A cracker of a novel, highly recommended, a phenomenal debut."
"Red Ribbons is an absolutely brilliant book ... spine-tingling with loads of twists and turns. A debut novel from a great writer who will soon be up there with the likes of Patricia Cornwell."
"Dark, spooky but believable."
"Red Ribbons has been getting rave reviews, especially for the insight it offers into the emotions of a mother who has lost her child."
-Irish Mail on Sunday
"The pace of this book is spot on, revealing information from the killer's past bit by bit to keep the reader turning the page."
"Fans of Sophie Hannah and SJ Watson will devour."
"Louise Phillips goes from strength to strength."
"Among the best crime writing in the world."
-Mark Philpott, BBC Radio Ulster
"I can certainly validate that Phillips is an equal to James Patterson, Sara Paretsky, Patricia Cornwell or any authors of cracking good police procedurals."
-By the Book Reviews
