Praise for The Confession:
“Even seasoned genre veterans will be riveted by this modern-day morality tale, which peels away layers of the present and past to reveal ugly truths and sins aplenty, from lust and greed to addiction and deceit.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Easily a contender for thriller of the year.”
NY Journal of Books

The Confession is a rare treat, a combination of a psychological thriller and a domestic drama with a bit of a police procedural thrown in…Block out some time to finish this book because you won’t want to stop reading once you pick it up.”

“Enthralling…Spain dissects her characters’ secrets with razor-sharp precision.”
—J. P. Delaney, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Before

“I was guessing until the final, tantalizing and wholly surprising pages of this character-driven sizzler. Don’t miss it!”
—David Bell, author of Somebody’s Daughter

“This story of betrayal, guilt, murder, revenge—and even possible redemption—is almost impossible to put down. I’m still not sure if confession is good for the soul, but The Confession is definitely good for those looking for a gripping read.”
Mystery Scene Magazine

“An absolute cracker of a book, compulsive, deviously plotted and intense—I will be recommending this to everyone.”
—Elizabeth Haynes, author of Into the Darkest Corner

“Jo Spain is such a talent. The Confession had me in its thrall from the first page, revealing the dark side of the Celtic Tiger.”
—Sarah Ward, author of In Bitter Chill

“I loved this twisty slice of domestic noir.”
—Claire McGowan, author of Blood Tide

“This intense psychological thriller explores themes of greed, lust, addiction, and revenge.”
Stop You’re Killing Me

“A climax that is shocking and unexpected.”
The Times (UK)
