Review

The Girl with a Clock for a Heart is a twisty, sexy, electric thrill ride and an absolute blast from start to finish. (DENNIS LEHANE)

As good as they come. A thrilling slice of contemporary noir with twists that you won't see coming. (MARK BILLINGHAM)

It's hard not to warm to this book - and very hard not to read it in one sitting. Swanson's writing is clean and measured, he throws in a ton of cliff-hangers, and he plays out his stolen identity concept - impossible in the age of Facebook, but how intriguing to remember how it wouldn't have been, 20 years ago - to thrilling, chilling effect. (Alison Flood, Thriller of the Month The Observer 2014-02-09)

Peter Swanson's debut The Girl with a Clock for a Heart is a tight, convincing neo-noir whose most obvious analogues are cinematic - Double Indemnity, Body Heat and especially John Dahl's The Last Seduction. (John O'Connell Guardian 2014-02-15)

An edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller that dares you to turn the next page, but it's much more dangerous than that. It dares you to take a hard, long look at people from your past and ask yourself who's worth holding on to and who's worth letting go. (WILEY CASH, author of A Land More Kind Than Home (winner of the John Creasey debut Dagger, 2012))

The spirit of film noir is alive in this twisty tale of an ordinary man whose life is disrupted by his first love - an old-fashioned femme fatale who brings double crossings, financial scams and murder in her devastating wake. Clever and stylish. (Deirdre O'Brien Sunday Mirror 2014-02-02)

This neatly devised novel has an intriguing plot (Jessica Mann Literary Review 2014-02-01)

'The labyrinthine plot here has a grip of high-tensile steel.' (Barry Forshaw Financial Times 2013-02-01)

Blending intrigue and murder with a dash of Du Maurier, Swanson's debut novel takes us on a journey into the darker avenues of the American heartlands ... Swanson's novel has already been optioned for a film contract and, with a stylish narrative drawing comparisons with Hitchcock, it looks set to be as dynamic on the big screen as it is on the page. (Matthew Leopold The Lady)

Peter Swanson's THE GIRL WITH A CLOCK FOR A HEART is a gripping thriller that centres around the mysterious Liana. . . Stunning. (Image Magazine 2013-02-01)

This foul-mouthed thriller is one Alfred Hitchcock might have had a good look at. (Jon Wise Sunday Sport)

A must read! (Harper's Bazaar)

'This elegant and accomplished debut from Swanson, an American best-known for his poetry and short stories, takes your breath away from the moment you meet the protagonist George Foss...Swanson's mature voice is matched by a plot that twists like a corkscrew. It has already been optioned as a movie, but read the book first - it is as satisfying as dark chocolate.' - Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail (Geoffrey Wansell Daily Mail)

'The Girl With a Clock for a Heart is a bold and ambitious debut written with all the skill and assurance of a master in the making. A crisp, clear narrative, an unfathomable line between good guys and bad guys and bucketloads of suspense ensure that the mystery continues to the very last page. Don't miss out on a tantalising treat...' (Pam Norfolk Lancashire Evening Post)

'Swanson's debut is a smart slice of contemporary noir.' (Mail on Sunday)

A well-plotted, enjoyably twisty debut. (John Dugdale, Sunday Times)
