Summary

Frances is bright, young and single, enjoying life and her burgeoning career in the big city.

But after attracting the attentions of a stranger, her life begins to unravel from the inside out.

A seductive novel of power and complicity, Consent shows us just how vulnerable we are to the will of others – people we may not even know . . .

Critic Reviews

A fascinating, disturbing and original thriller.

Enormously compelling.

Observer
Critic Reviews

Darkly addictive.

Mail on Sunday
Critic Reviews

[A] page-turner . . . Consent is thought-provoking as well as shocking.

Metro
Critic Reviews

Ingeniously nasty . . . reminiscent of Vladimir Nabokov and Patricia Highsmith, Leo Benedictus’s Consent is the confessions of a stalker.

Sunday Times
Critic Reviews

Creepy, obsessive, insidiously persistent: stalkers deserve a prominent place in any catalogue of contemporary evils . . . It is this unease that Leo Benedictus expertly taps in Consent, a queasily compelling thriller.
