Berry skips between Claire's present-day investigations and her reconstruction of her parents' lives almost three decades earlier in this beautifully paced and satisfyingly ominous story. (Observer)

As well as confirming the promise of Berry's debut, Under the Harrow, the book demonstrates that fusing fiction and true crime can be mesmerisingly effective. (The Sunday Times)

Flynn Berry writes thrillingly about women raging against a world that protects cruel and careless men. She's less preoccupied by scenes of abuse than the psychological toll of its threat. Her protagonists seethe over their knowledge of violence and are fueled by a howling grief for its victims. Berry proved in Under the Harrow that her prose can be as blistering as it is lush. Here, too, the writing is rich and moody, without any unnecessary fuss... The ending is as shocking as it is satisfying. (New York Times, Editor's Choice)

[An] interesting ... reimagining of the Lord Lucan story... Berry brings the story to a satisfyingly shocking conclusion. (Guardian)

A compulsive page-turner (Daily Mail)

A Double Life isn't just a whodunit but a damning dissection on class and privilege too. Fans of Elizabeth Day's The Party will love this. (Sarra Manning, Red Online)

A stifling air of unease builds with every page (Prima)

A quietly menacing thriller by up-and-coming talent Flynn Berry. (Good Housekeeping UK)

Psychological suspense has a new reigning queen (New York Journal of Books)

A detailed and compelling story of a family's fallout from a brutal crime, and the search for truth and retribution. (Fanny Blake, Woman & Home)











WHO IS CLAIRE'S FATHER?

A privileged man, surrounded by devoted friends and a family he adores?

Or the deranged killer who attacked Claire's mother and then vanished in thin air?

For thirty years Claire has been obsessed with uncovering the mystery at the heart of her life, and she knows her father's friends - wealthy, powerful, ruthless - hold the key to the truth.

They know where Claire's father is. And it's time their perfect lives met her fury.
