Praise

“Suspense-filled . . . This multi-layered story by England’s best-selling female crime writer blends current events, the politics of sexual relationships and the development of personal identity into a psychologically compelling novel.”
USA Today

“A Walters novel is like no other. She bases her books on facts gathered from real life [and] then embosses with her own painstaking research and fertile imagination . . . The revelations are astounding.”
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“A sizzling psychological thriller.”
Publishers Weekly

“Solid plotting, superb characterization, and fascinating information on traumatic brain injuries make this compelling thriller a sure winner . . . Walters’ latest suspense tale mixes the creepiness of [an] old noir movie with a contemporary, ripped-from-the-headlines exploration of the aftereffects of traumatic brain injury on soldiers.”
Booklist (starred)

Praise from the UK & Canada:

“What marks Minette Walters out from the rest is not just the complex yet utterly convincing psychological profiles she draws of her characters, but the fact that she really gets into the heads of some disturbing people . . . No wonder she is the country’s bestselling female crime writer. But even this label does not do justice to the scope and breadth of her gripping, terrifying novels. The Chameleon’s Shadow is another classic.”
The Mirror

“Minette Walters is one of crime fiction’s finest creators of character. That ability is on full show in this novel of trust and fear . . . All the characters are beautifully built, and Acland is a brilliant creation . . . If you like a character-driven crime novel with great psychological depth, you’ll love The Chameleon’s Shadow.”
Globe and Mail (Toronto)

“An accomplished psychological thriller . . . The Chameleon’s Shadow is as frightening and as compulsively readable as Walters’s previous novels, with as ingenious a plot.”
Times Literary Supplement

“Minette Walters holds a unique place in crime fiction today. That’s because she does so much more than produce tense crime thrillers . . . This is another page-turner and another novel which will deservedly take its place on the bestseller list.”
Sunday Express

“Minette Walters is an adventurous novelist . . . In The Chameleon’s Shadow, [she] leads us to the answer with her usual disturbing ability to look into damaged minds.”
The Times (London)

“A disturbing and fascinating thriller . . . Walters’s characters ring true whether she’s dealing with a career-obsessed young army officer, a teenage thief or a dirty old man edging towards senility.”
The Spectator
