The Girl with a Clock for a Heart

Editorial reviews

The Girl with a Clock for a Heart

This is a highly original story, well told, that should be a contender for crime fiction’s best first novel of 2014.

Swanson's writing is clean and measured, he throws in a ton of cliff-hangers, and he plays out his stolen identity concept – impossible in the age of Facebook, but how intriguing to remember how it wouldn't have been, 20 years ago – to thrilling, chilling effect.

The Girl with a Clock for a Heart is Peter Swanson’s debut novel, but Swanson demonstrates from the first paragraph of this intriguing thriller that he has the goods.
