Reviews

Praise for "Dead Scared"
"Outstanding. . .Bolton never eases up the tension; her tightly coiled plot and heroine on the edge work perfectly in tandem."
--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review, Pick of the Week)
"A number of superlatives could be used to describe Bolton's new work, but a simple "wow!" will do. After reading the last sentence, I realized I had been holding my breath during the final page or two. Yes, the ending is that gripping. The story's atmosphere is dark and spooky, the main characters are strong yet vulnerable and the plot is refreshingly unpredictable. This stunning psychological thriller is well worth your time. You'll be hooked from page one."
--"RT Book Reviews" (41/2 Stars, Top Pick)
"Credible characters, an evocative setting, and a chilling group of clever sadists make the latest from Bolton a satisfying and suspenseful read."
--"Booklist
"Praise for "Now You See Me"
"S. J. Bolton is changing the face of crime fiction--if you only read one crime novel this year, make it this."
--Tess Gerritsen
""Now You See Me" is really special: multi-layered and sophisticated, but tough too."
"--"Lee Child
"Bolton provides excruciating tension and much else. Romantics can drool over Jonesbury's turquoise eyes; amateur psychologists can mull Lacey's one-nighters; and Ripperologists can ponder theories of Jack's real identity, one of which helps tie up the plot."
"Kirkus Reviews" (starred review, One of the Best Mysteries of 2011)
"The twists keep coming, and the truth is not revealed until the final page in Bolton's best novel yet."
"Library Journal" (starred review)
"Nice atmosphere and good Ripper lore."
--"Booklist"
"Bolton's fourth thriller, a complex psychological puzzler, stands head and shoulders above other such efforts featuring a modern copycat Jack the Ripper. . .Bolton skillfully plays with the reader's expectations."

Bolton's second novel featuring London police officer Lacey Flint is as suspenseful a psychological thriller as Now You See Me. Working again with Mark Joesbury, Flint goes undercover as a student in Cambridge when a higher-than-usual suicide rate is reported, and authorities begin to suspect that someone is pushing vulnerable students to take their own lives. However, Flint doesn't realize that her own past makes her the perfect victim, and she finds herself alone and vulnerable among strangers. When terrifying nightmares disturb her sleep and strange encounters occur in her waking hours, Flint begins to question her hold on her sanity. VERDICT Although Now You See Me is tough to beat, Bolton comes close with this sequel. Readers will be caught up in the twists and turns that leave them hanging until the final paragraph.
