Review

‘[An] intriguing exploration of deceit and duplicity’ Guardian

‘I devoured this beautifully written, intricately wrought and unique blend of spy thriller and domestic suspense: The Most Difficult Thing is The Night Manager set in a woman’s world. The twists keep coming, right down to that chilling last line’ Erin Kelly

‘A compelling and emotionally resonant mixture of spy thriller and domestic suspense’ Daily Telegraph

‘Charlotte Philby’s debut The Most Difficult Thing is an enigmatic and slippery beast, a cool new generation of spy novel. Just as the characters play cat and mouse with one another, so does the author with her readers – it’s a guessing game right to the end and I turned the last page with my heart pounding. Recommended’ Louise Candlish

‘A genre-busting spy novel that amps up the tension and will leave you trusting no one’ Red

‘Dark and addictive and magnificent’ Joanna Cannon, author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep and Three Things About Elsie

‘A writer of promise’ Financial Times

‘An espionage/domestic noir crossover in which betrayal is as inevitable as it is compulsive’ i Paper

‘Compulsive and chilling’ Good Housekeeping

‘A page-turning thriller’ BBC Radio 4 Open Book

‘Like The Night Manager rewritten by Patricia Highsmith, this is a distinctively female take on spying’ Mail on Sunday EVENT Magazine

‘Compelling and complex – a compulsive read’ Harriet Tyce, author of Blood Orange

‘Spying has been her inheritance and this brilliant, beautifully crafted debut novel uses it to the full – and so much more besides’ Jon Snow, Channel 4 News

‘Philby clearly understands something about deceit and betrayal, making this a page-turner with several cliffhanger moments, including the ending’ Daily Express
