Reviews for Helen C. Escott’s work:

“What an absolutely fantastic book! Such a clever and original idea, with thoroughly likable (and some definitely hate-able!) characters; easy to read, completely engaging – a page turner without a doubt. If I could give it 10/10 I would. I look forward to reading further work by Ms. Escott and eagerly await the release of Operation Vanished.”
