Daisy Pearce is a bestselling writer and lover of ghosts, salt water and creepy films. Since receiving a lockpicking kit she has become a master of unlocking and used to run a skate shop in London (although she can’t skate, except for a fluke kickflip in 1993). Her debut novel The Silence went to No.1 in the Kindle charts and her second novel The Missing features Goth girls and graveyards, a tribute to her awkward childhood.
Praise for Daisy Pearce
“Pearce is superb – she is relentless, catching your mind and leading you into the dark. A must read.”
“Loved this book. Stephen Kingesque with elements of Donna Tartt’s Secret History and Daniel Handler’s Basic Eight. A great, pacy read – couldn’t put it down.”
“Brilliant brilliant brilliant I absolutely loved this book.”
“Could not put it down. I tore through this book in a few glorious hours one weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. GRIPPING!”
“I loved this book. The protagonist Stella Wiseman is vulnerable and fragile yet her strength is palpable. I found myself really rooting for her the whole way through despite (and possibly because of) her flaws. There’s a surprising supernatural element which is cleverly woven through the story.”
“This was seriously one of the most creepy books I’ve ever read. It was because it was so believable that it made my blood run cold.”
“This story was packed with a punch and a half! I devoured it and was thinking about the story even when I didn’t have the book in my hands… and when that happens, YOU KNOW IT’S GOOD! There were so many characters involved – suspicious, crazy, and vengeful ones, and twists and turns at every chapter.”
“As an avid reader of mystery/thrillers and some horror novels, this is by far one of the best combinations of both I have read for quite some time.”
“Pearce is superb -with twists and turns that keep you running forward into the dark.”
I loved this. I picked it up after enjoying the 1st book so much and wasn’t disappointed. Kept me guessing right up to the bitter end and even with a hectic family life I found I couldn’t put it down. I look forward to the next one and loved the little cameo from The Silence.
