Sultry and engrossing, with a note of menace, it's a gorgeously smart affair whose deceptive lightness conceals strange depths and an arresting originality . . . take it to the beach and savour every page * Observer * Drawing the reader inexorably on to the heightened, rug-pulling denouement, this is beach reading at its finest * Daily Mail * Every sentence as sharp as a scalpel . . . tantalizing -- Liska Jacobs * New York Times Book Review * At once chilling and eminently evocative of the rarefied world it portrays . . . a definite contender for Status Vacation Book of 2023 * Vogue * The ideal mix of hazy summer glamour and shimmering threat for compulsive beach reading... A gripping, almost ghastly book -- Megan Nolan, author of ACTS OF DESPERATION * Observer, *Summer Reads of 2023* * The Girls was exceptional; The Guest, with its exquisite pacing and deliciously muddled moral compass, is even better -- Emily Watkins * Scotland on Sunday * Atmospheric and at times incandescent -- Michelle Hart * Los Angeles Times * Cline's writing at its very best - hypnotically propulsive, viscerally disquieting, and moving in the most unpredictable ways -- Doug Battersby * Financial Times * The tension never wavers . . . This is rich material for Cline, who trains a chilly eye on the preposterous affluence and exclusivity of that part of the world -- Emma Brockes * Guardian * The Girls was exceptional; The Guest...is even better... Compulsively readable... The Guest is as refreshing as a dip in a cool pool on a hot day * i * As bracing as saltwater... Cline possesses unmistakable talent; her bursts of genuine originality and startling insight make that clear -- Ann Manov * Daily Telegraph * A tale of the ultimate grifter. Doused in ambiguity and foreboding -- Imy Brighty-Potts * Independent * A new tense summer adventure * Stylist * A searing portrayal of the precariat? Or a slick summer thriller? The answer is: both . . . you won't be able to look away -- Laura Battle * Financial Times * This unsettling but gripping novel takes us deep into the mind of a woman living a shadowy half-life -- Vanessa Berridge * Daily Mirror * Crucial reading for any young woman -- Alex Peake-Tomkinson * Evening Standard * Undeniably compelling and atmospheric... a poolside-worthy page-turner * Sunday Express * A taut, tense novel... The Guest is a strong follow-up... Her [Cline's] prose is limpid and propulsive, sustaining an atmosphere of dread. * Economist * [An] arresting observational eye -- Alex Clark * Financial Times * A thrilling dissection of survival and how far its protagonist will (or can) go to achieve it -- Virginia Feito, author of MRS MARCH * Observer, *Summer Reads of 2023* *
