Review

Heaberlin's latest thriller is at once a zany, dialogue-propelled two-hander, a murder mystery, a road trip, a pair of psychological case studies and a meditation on photographyThe Sunday Times

Every journey reaches its end, and the one in Paper Ghosts comes on fast and furious. Signposts along the way warn of angst, secrets and deadly plot twists, but you'll never see what's coming . . . Washington Post

A tale of murderous obsession . . . Heaberlin, author of the impressive Black-Eyed Susans, plays her cards close to her chest, careful to give away little about the motivations of either of her characters, as her heroine edges closer to the truth' -- A THRILLER OF THE MONTH ― The Guardian

Wonderful . . . creepy . . . it elevates the often tawdry genre of the serial killer novel to a work of artSunday Express

Heaberlin's works beautifully evoke the texture and landscape of the state of Texas . . . Their road trip across Texas results in profound revelations, strange occurrences, and a surprisingly heartwarming ending -- Molly Odintz ― Crimereads

Gripping . . . dementia suits crime fiction. Is the suspect lying or has a medical reason for his amnesia? ― The Times

Beautifully written and wonderfully chilling -- Sarah Pinborough

Readers cannot tell fact from fiction. The timing is perfect, the layers of the story both peel away and deepen as the search into the mind of a killer takes turns no one is expectingRT Book Reviews

The tension crackles . . . it had me changing my mind so often, my head was spinning. A work of art.Sunday Express

A dialogue propelled two-hander, a murder mystery, a road novel, a pair of psychological case studies. It would make a fine indie movie, although screen adaption would entail sacrificing Heaberlin's evocative prose -- THRILLER OF THE MONTH ― The Sunday Times

Book Description
