Great first novel. Shades of Val McDermid and Stieg Larsson – Amazon review for Hidden Depths by Ally Rose

“Great first novel. Shades of Val McDermid and Stieg Larsson The historical research which has clearly gone into this is impressive and the characterisation good. The plot is excellent with some great twists and the story keeps you guessing right to the end. A murderer is made into a sympathetic character than you really want to root for. Highly recommended.”
