Praise for The Perfect Son

“[A] perfect summer thriller…The author’s ability to create a sense of escalating unease is one of her most notable achievements….The twist in The Perfect Son is a big one.”—The Columbus Dispatch 

“[An] emotionally harrowing debut…an intimate, unbalancing mix of grief, paranoia, gaslighting, maternal protectiveness, and profound compassion.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A powerful, unpredictable debut thriller about a mother’s attempt to reassemble her life from the shards of tragedy. Lauren North’s skillful narrative casts everyone as a suspect and keeps the reader guessing until the final, emotion-packed pages.”—David Bell, USA Today bestselling author of Layover

“The thriller is told in two alternating time periods that come together at the very end, with a very big twist.”—
“A fast-paced psychological thriller.”—BookRiot

“A heart-rending evocation of grief that packs a devious punch. It left me reeling.”—Lesley Kara, author of the international bestseller The Rumor
“As satisfyingly intriguing and page-turning as you could possibly want. An emotional read—the end is a shocker!”—Emma Curtis, author of When I Find You
“Beautifully written psychological suspense about the power of love after a life-changing loss. A sense of impending doom and foreboding gripped me from the first page….The ending is stunning and powerful.”—Mary Torjussen, author of The Girl I Used To Be
