Unpredictable, wildly original and with an ending that made me
gasp, this is thriller writing at its very best -- Nuala
Simon Lelic is on my radar from this point forward. The Search Party is taut, beautifully written, and scary as hell, with more twists than a mountain road -- Christina Dalcher
I loved this book, from one of my favourite authors. You'll definitely want to read this absorbing, creepy, and totally unputdownable novel -- Luca Veste
I raced through The Search Party, unable to put it down. It's tense, twisty and intricately plotted, with characters that stay with you long after you've read the last page -- Laura Marshall
A brilliantly original story with an immediately intriguing cast of characters and a compelling mystery that kept me hooked throughout. With his insightful characterisation combined with a gripping plot, Lelic has just recruited a brand new fan -- Philippa East
A masterful, original ... A thriller and a half -- Michael Wood
