The Three is really wonderful, a mix of Michael Crichton and Shirley Jackson. Hard to put down and vastly entertaining.’ – Stephen King

‘The finest thriller I’ve read in years. Dark, subtle and completely unputdownable, I was enthralled from the opening line to the last.’ – Sarah Pinborough

‘It’s reminiscent of Stephen King’s Carrie and The Three comes preloaded with praise from the master of horror himself. It deserves it: this high-concept thriller is a blast.’ –The Guardian
