‘An excellent debut with a sinister sting. Reveals and plot twists delivered so skilfully that you won’t know who to trust.’ <b>Mel Sherratt</b>

‘<i>Someone You Know</i> is such a compelling, page-turning read – full of secrets, intrigue, and twists. Isaac-Henry has created a wonderful cast of characters – I doubted almost all of them, but how wrong I was. Highly recommended.’ <b>Elisabeth Carpenter</b>

‘<i>Someone You Know</i> is a tale that evokes the well-used phrase ‘a page turner’ but manages to do so without compromising on language or intelligence. Very well-written with an original plot that kept me guessing till the end. Isaac-Henry has a unique voice and brings a thoroughly fresh perspective to the crime novel genre. Heartily recommended. Can't wait for her next offering.’ <b>Syd Moore</b>

‘Dark, twisted, creepy, atmospheric, engaging, unputdownable brilliance. Read this book in 2019. I implore you.’ <b>NetGalley reviewer</b>

‘An intense, creepy and pacy thriller.’ <b>NetGalley reviewer</b>
