Praise for Lisa Ballantyne:
"A moving, insightful novel."-- "The Guardian"
"Lisa Ballantyne's The Innocent One is a crackling good read--exactly the kind of novel that readers have come to expect from one of the most talented psychological suspense authors working today. With a gripping, twisty plot, conflicted and relatable characters, ever-rising tension, and an ending that's as thrilling as it is satisfying, I loved this book!"--Karen Dionne, bestselling author of The Marsh King's Daughter
"A skillful mixture of creepy crime thriller and gripping domestic drama, The Innocent One had me turning the pages late into the night."--C. J. Cooper, bestselling author of The Book Club
"Ballantyne's effortless prose took me across the Atlantic and didn't let me return until its surprising and satisfying conclusion. A tight story that comes full circle and keeps you reading."--Bryan Reardon, author of Finding Jake
"'It was a terrible thing to know you were going to die and not be able to do anything to prevent it.' Fingernail-on-a-chalkboard sentences like this one are what make The Innocent One, Lisa Ballantyne's fifth novel -- the follow-up to 2012's The Guilty One -- so good. Fashioning memorable suspense out of a well-known case is incredibly difficult, but Ballantyne makes it look easy."-- "The New York Times Book Review"
"A character-driven, domestic crime novel. Through juxtaposing the choices of two emotionally disturbed boys, Ballantyne sensitively explores themes of rejection, abuse, and forgiveness."-- "Booklist"
