Reviews

`A wonderfully assured debut about every parent's darkest nightmare - expertly weaving a family's story together with a real sense of tension and some great twists. Highly recommended.' TM Logan, bestselling author of LIES

`An intense domestic thriller, twists and turns galore, and a host of family secrets. An absorbing read.' PAUL FINCH, bestselling author of STRANGERS

`Libby Carpenter's beautiful writing draws you in immediately. Her characterisation is superb, and she skillfully delivers a pacey, suspenseful plot. 99 Red Balloons is an intelligent, taut and compelling thriller that manages to pack a punch - and still throws you right at the end. It's perfect - I loved every word.' SAM CARRINGTON, bestselling author of SAVING SOPHIE

`I LOVED 99 Red Balloons. What a rollercoaster of a read! I swear, you could almost SEE the moment when everything clicked into place in my head! A brilliant, tense, pacy read.' LISA HALL, bestselling author of BETWEEN ME AND YOU

`This sharp, poignant domestic noir is like watching a snake slither towards its prey. You want to look away but somehow you can't stop looking. Carpenter emerges as an addictive new talent, climbing inside the characters and opening them up for the reader to devour. What a wonderful debut!' HELEN FIELDS, author or PERFECT REMAINS

'I loved this book. It is a thoroughly satisfying page turning read, full of characterisation and pathos. The empathy I felt towards the characters is to me , for a crime novel, what makes it stand out. Very well written and the plot is seamless.' AMANDA ROBSON, author of OBSESSION
