Review:

A NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLER

‘A literary banquet overflowing with morsels of Nancy Drew, mouthfuls of Agatha Christie, a sprinkle of Barbara Cartland and dashes of James Patterson and Tom Clancy … [The]combination of detective story and romantic saga is likely to intrigue Allende fans … What lingers is Allende's generosity with fictional detail, her warmth and humanity’ Observer

‘Idiosyncratic, unflinching, glaringly contemporary (it is about a bunch of online gamers who end up tracking a serial killer in San Francisco) and obviously much better written than it needs to be. Allende excels at exacting portraiture and barbed asides’ Guardian

‘As it gathers pace, the tale becomes gripping and delivers a clever final twist’ Sunday Times

‘”Ripper” is full of wry humour. Brimming over with humanity it is very far from being a straightforward thriller … All Allende's habitual concerns are on display: the interplay of character, the importance of family and the conflicting pulls of religion, spiritualism and alternative remedies … Allende manages to pull it off as a terrific storyteller. She holds the reader's attention from start to finish and throws in a neat twist at the end’ Daily Express, Five Stars

‘Thoroughly charming book … a lot of fun to read. Also, it features a teenage sleuth… who is pretty much irresistible …
Allende blithely dispenses with the more restrictive genre conventions to get to the fun parts … A canvas so crowded with life that even death seems to melt into the background’ New York Times

‘Literary icon Isabel Allende mesmerizes with her first crime novel … this race-against-the-clock thriller is pure magic’ People Magazine

‘The author handles a complicated plot and complex characters with great skill’ Country Life Magazine
