Trust me - Cummins is a keeper -- Lee Child If you haven't read Fiona Cummins and you're a Mo Hayder fan, make sure you read her first book and then her second. With the lights on -- Emma Flint I didn't think anything could top Rattle, but The Collector might just have done it. Chilling, heart-breaking and bloody brilliant -- Tammy Cohen Terrifically unsettling. This book should come with a heath warning: Don't read just before going to bed at night -- Michelle Frances Totally, totally brilliant. Even more twisted than the first one. A whole another level of serial killer awesome -- Lisa Hall Spine-chilling and brilliant, beautifully written, creepily clever and utterly absorbing - just like Rattle -- Karen Hamilton The Collector is sensational. Fiona Cummins is a twisted genius writing with a silver pen. This is crime at its grisly and glorious best -- Amanda Jennings Every bit as compelling as Rattle, with a dark, suspenseful plotline that had me holding my breath. The characters are so well drawn: the Collector himself is terrifying and the vulnerability of his victims really draws the reader in, making you yearn for justice and wonder how the nightmare will ever end . . . Brilliant, scary, creepy read -- Debbie Howells The Collector is a masterpiece of suspense writing. As eerily stomach-churning as it gets, this story will consume you. One of the best antagonist creations in a decade -- Helen Fields An excellent read -- Martina Cole on Rattle It's a rare debut that has this much polish. Harrowing and horrifying, head and shoulders above most of the competition -- Val McDermid on Rattle Made a paranoid hypochondriac for a few days! -- Sophie Hannah on Rattle Dark, stylish and scarily plausible -- Joseph Knox on Rattle Seriously creepy and very well written. One that'll have you double checking your doors are locked at night -- Ali Land on Rattle A creepy crime debut with shades of Babadook about it . . . I think it will be huge -- Sarah Hilary on Rattle
