Praise from readers of The Scarborough Mysteries:
‘Kate Evans excels at character driven crime novels that vividly evoke their windswept Scarborough setting’ Jaq Hazell, author of I Came to Find a Girl.
‘A blustery northern coastal town, a brutal murder and a complex cast of characters.
Kate Evans’s debut crime novel explores the world of therapists, which is cleverly used to explore fear and guilt, as well as perhaps the motive for murder. I found it compelling, and look forward to reading the next one.’ Rebecca Rowe
‘The first thing to mention is the writing style is incredibly strong. The description for example is wonderful throughout; the words used help to set the reader right in the heart of Scarborough. … The description through this book is brilliantly constructed so that I really felt completely immersed.’ Lizzy, My Little Book Blog
‘This was my Christmas read, and it was wonderful to curl up by the fire and immerse myself in this multi-layered novel. Wonderful setting in Scarborough and a plot filled with interesting and diverse characters. Loved it, can’t wait for the next one.’
