"Can't remember who...drew my attention to the new Julie Myerson, but whomever it was, thank you. It's bloody brilliant."--Paula Hawkins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Girl on the Train
"Increasingly gripping.... What Myerson writes about so well: that eerie sense when something is both familiar and unfamiliar."--Katharine Weber, New York Times Book Review
"Gripping parallel narrative."--New York Times Book Review, Editor's Choice
"On the first page, it's clear that something indescribably horrific has happened.... This novel is impossible to put down; it will be read compulsively to learn the what of what has happened, if not the why. A stunner."--Booklist (starred review)
"Just as frightening as Edgar Allan Poe.... Scary, suspenseful, and the most intriguing novel yet. This new thriller by Julie Myerson is incredible."--San Francisco Book Review
"Myerson twines a delightfully twisted tale, exposing the dark underbelly of love and the gaping, raw wounds of grief... By turns terrifying and heartbreaking; an enthralling spine-chiller."--Kirkus Reviews
"In this hair-raiser, Mary Coles moves to a country cottage that seems too good to be true...and it turns out, she's right. Goose-bumps ensue."--Cosmopolitan
"Beautifully written and cleverly told.... An extraordinarily potent experience and not for the faint-hearted."--The Guardian
"The story is heart wrenching, unremittingly grisly.... A thriller and...a page-turner.... The Stopped Heart exposes the flesh of the lives cut in half, the pain and loves of the past, and why they are no less real than the present."--Independent (UK)
"Myerson evokes mystery and madness, with glimpses into devastating events, the full extent of which are slowly and skillfully uncovered."--Vogue (UK)
"This novel is beautifully written and cleverly told. And it's almost completely terrifying.... Edge-of-your-seat suspense.... It's the sort of book you cannot put down."--The Guardian (UK)
