-- "Gilly Macmillan, New York Times bestselling author of What She Knew"

"There's no hitting stop in this cleverly crafted thriller. With its claustrophobic, isolated setting and superb cast of characters, Rewind will keep you utterly absorbed until the last tense turn of the page. Compelling and brilliant. The perfect read for any crime-fiction fan."

-- "Olivia Kiernan, author of The Killer in Me"

"Part twisty thriller, part Black Mirror nightmare, Rewind is a deftly written page-turner that keeps you guessing. A scary, cunning, and all too real exploration of contemporary dangers by a rising star of Irish noir."

"Rewind is brilliant: an expertly constructed thriller that plays on our worst fears about modern life. Catherine Ryan Howard has a genius for creating memorable and convincing characters--some appealing, some horrifying--and the plot moves back and forth through their lives like a pendulum counting down to the explosive ending.
