About the Author
ROSE WILDING is a crime writer from the north of England. She studied at the University of Manchester, University of Sunderland, and Towson University. When not murdering fictional people, she can usually be found drinking coffee, reading feminist sci-fi, or posting more pictures than anyone needs of her two chihuahuas on Instagram. Speak of the Devil is her debut novel.

"With seven unreliable narrators, the twists in this one will keep readers guessing." -Parade

"Wilding delves deep, focusing on a character-driven story in her deliciously tense debut." -South Florida Sun-Sentinel

"This captivating debut literary thriller entwines the searing stories of several women who suffered at the hands of the same man. This cautionary tale satisfies in its culmination of long-overdue justice for spurned women." -Library Journal (starred)

"What's most distinctive here is not the question of whodunit or even the piercing group portrait of the women in Jamie's life but the delicate care with which Wilding ensures that even the most routine revelations...arrive with a jolt." -Kirkus Reviews

"A clever and tight thriller that demands to be read in one setting." -Crime Reads

"[The women's] stories converge in a way that will appeal to Kate Atkinson's readers...This debut author is one to watch." -FirstCLUE

"Mesmerizing and unflinchingly dark...Wilding is a powerful new talent whose captivating characters will stay with readers long after they've finished the book." -Rachel Kapelke-Dale, author of The Ingenue

A propulsive and complexly layered story...Fans of Lucy Foley and Ruth Ware won't want to miss this one." -Nora Murphy, author of The Favor

"Harrowing and haunting, Rose Wilding's assured debut is full of nuanced, complex, beautifully flawed characters...completely compelling." --Sara Nisha Adams, author of The Reading List

"Absolutely, barnstormingly brilliant. Beyond gripping, with wonderful characters you know and care about, feel rage for and with. Perfectly paced and plotted, I loved every dark, clever, powerful page." -Cressida McLaughlin, author of The House of Birds and Butterflies

"Wilding takes an axe to toxic masculinity...maneuvering her vivid characters around like a virtuoso puppeteer. It's a powerful, accomplished and important debut from a writer who has not only found her own voice but given one to others who have previously been silenced." -Trevor Wood, author of Dead End Street

"Assured & compelling...Rose Wilding's evocation of the Newcastle setting & pitch-perfect ear for dialogue make every one of her characters live & breathe. I love the way she can unpick their lives before our eyes, exposing every secret." -Kate Rhodes, author of Crossbones Yard

"Utterly unputdownable, absorbing, dark and at times ineffably beautiful...With unforgettable, complex characters and a sympathetic, painterly eye for detail that makes them and the landscapes they inhabit leap from the page, Wilding conjures their stories to life in all their knotty, vibrant glory. The result is not to be missed." -Lauren Brown, author of Hands: An Anxious Mind Unpicked

"A very accomplished debut...I loved it." -Harriet Tyce, bestselling author of The Lies You Told

'With beautiful, gripping writing and depth, Speak of the Devil is a mesmerising, moving story that is impossible to look away from. Superb!' -Gytha Lodge, bestselling author of Little Sister

"A smart and totally compelling tale of revenge - with brilliantly complex characters. It hooked me from the opening page and kept me guessing right up to the end." -Emily Koch, author of Keep Him Close

"A story with a fiercely feminist heart [and] lots of moments that stopped me in my tracks." -Katie Bishop, author of The Girls of Summer
