Product description

Review

Praise for Snap

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2018

"With her deeply quirky take, Belinda Bauer is totally unlike contemporaries, and all her crime novels have a very distinct identity. Readers never know what to expect with each new novel, except that it will be highly accomplished."--Financial Times (UK)

"The children steal the show in Belinda Bauer's unnerving suspense novel."--Marilyn Stasio, New York Times

"Bauer deftly interweaves a West Country cold-case murder, a teenage master burglar, some ill-assorted coppers and a pregnant wife, knowing exactly when the turn the dial to humor, pathos or something darker. Intelligent entertainment that keeps you guessing."--Sunday Times Crime Club (UK)

"The best crime novel I've read in a very long time."--Val McDermid, author of Insidious Intent

"[A] spine-chilling, tension-packed gripper."--Woman & Home (UK)

"Bauer secures her place as a star in the British psychological-suspense firmament with this tightly written tale . . . Readers who miss Ruth Rendell are sure to become fast Bauer fans."--Booklist (starred review)

"How in the world did Belinda Bauer create this 14-year-old Robin Hood of a cat burglar who stole my heart? I absolutely loved this utterly satisfying read. My 'gotta know' knotted with overwhelming sympathy for the victimized and Snap gripped me to the last page." --Randy Susan Meyers, bestselling author of The Widow of Wall Street

"Snap is the best kind of crime novel--it gives you chills, it makes you think, and it touches your heart. I loved it!"--Sarah Pinborough, author of Behind Her Eyes

"Original, pacy and thoroughly entertaining . . . A cracking read."--Clare Mackintosh, author of I See You

"Is there a current writer in the genre who can be guaranteed never to repeat themselves--and who comes up with an original premise for each new book? . . . It is the highly individual Belinda Bauer. Snap, her latest novel, continues this pleasing trajectory . . . There are echoes of earlier novels here: Julian Gloag's Our Mother's House and Ian McEwan's The Cement Garden, but Bauer (as ever) is very much her own woman, and produces something that exerts a considerable grip on the reader."--Crime Time (UK)

About the Author

Belinda Bauer is the author of seven previous award-winning novels that have been translated into twenty-one languages. She lives in Wales.
