Miss Sr McAllister
An excellent readReviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 October 2018
I love a good crime novel, thriller, whatever you want to call it. However, I'm fussy, I can't read the ones that are full of cliches, or cheesy, or corny, or just predictable. So Paper Ghosts by Julia Heaberlin was an absolute treasure - I loved it. It's original, beautifully written, with an interesting and unique voice. It's inspired me to read more by this author, who I'd previously not known.

Sir Benedict Godfrey
Unnerving and intriguingReviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 June 2019
I wouldn't say unputdownable (not even a word recognised on spell checker) as it's a slow burner. That said, it's intriguing. The protagonist is the sister of a murdered girl. The supposed killer has dementia and the protagonist takes him to various past haunts where he committed his murderous deeds. This is with the view of shaking out old memories from him so he confesses to killing the sister as he'd previously denied it. This makes it unnerving; does he really have dementia or is it a way to get released early from prison and into a care home for ex convicts. There's always a sense of danger because of this. A good strong female lead, who also has some flaws which makes it realistic. So why don't you join the protagonist and her serial killer car passenger and find out if she finds the truth or even survives the journey.
Absolutely fantastic!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 June 2018
I loved this book! It's beautifully written, as well as being a complete page-turner - which can be an unusual combination. It reminded me of both Gillian Flynn and Donna Tartt, but I actually preferred it to both. It will stay with me for a long time I think; definitely the sign of a good book.

brilliant!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 February 2020
I loved this book. I can't believe there are any reviews below 5 stars. The book follows the weirdest road trip you can imagine but instead of hating Carl we warm to him as he's odd and funny and sad. The novel moves slowly and inextricably towards the climax which is unexpected and shocking. No spoilers. This is very different from an all action, pacy thriller with bodies everywhere, there are no graphic descriptions of violence or lingering details of gore, it's better than that and better written than most thrillers. I'd really recommend this to anyone who wants some thing a bit different, a bit smarter and a bit more thought provoking than your average crime novel.
Great ReadReviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 December 2018
I very much enjoyed this book. I really warmed to the characters and the complex relationship between Carl and Grace is beautifully written, as is the profound loss Grace has experienced from her sister's disappearance. Having worked with dementia patients I also felt this was captured sensitively. The ending was just how I'd hoped it would be.
