Review

"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."
-Arlene Hunt

"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."
-Stafford FM

"Dark, spooky but believable."
-Irish Examiner

"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."
-Novelicious

"Fans of Sophie Hannah and SJ Watson will devour."
-Writing.ie

"Louise Phillips goes from strength to strength."
-Irish Independent

"Among the best crime writing in the world."
-Mark Philpott, BBC Radio Ulster

REVIEWS FOR THEY ALL LIED

PATRICIA GIBNEY

"THEY ALL LIED is riveting and thrilling in equal measure. A story told at breath-taking pace. It dropped me in at the deep end from the very beginning and I didn’t come up for air until the very last page.

Filled with fantastic characters who find themselves in terrifying and unexpected situations. I kept asking myself, what I would do if it was me?

A fantastic read with so many great twists. The best book from Louise Phillips so far. I loved it!"

BRIAN MC GILLOWAY

“Gangland crime, domestic violence and the sins of the past collide as Phillips spins a web of intrigue and suspense that keeps the reader guessing, building to a wholly satisfying conclusion. Compassionate, compelling and clever. THEY ALL LIED grips you from the opening page and doesn’t let you go."

JANE CASEY

"Louise Phillips is one of the most original and distinctive voices in Irish Crime fiction."

ANTHONY QUINN

"With Louise Phillips you’re in the hands of a writer who knows how to conjure up suspense, darkness and an inexplicable nightmare. When her daughter goes missing, a desperate mother is prepared to use every tool at her disposal to bring her child back, but soon finds herself on a ride into the hellish reaches of her buried past. An explosive thriller with brilliant twists."

ANDREA MARA

"Secrets and lies and the games people play – They All Lied is cleverly plotted and deftly woven, with surprises at every turn leading to a most satisfying ending."
