Critic Reviews

You’ll struggle not to read Every Vow You Break in one sitting. Peter Swanson’s subtle hints that all is not what it seems builds to a thrilling and gripping crescendo ... The author peels away layers of treachery leaving the reader, and unwitting newlywed Abigail, unsure of who to trust. Swanson taps into a survival instinct particularly resonant with the female experience, and makes Every Vow You Break glamorous, dark and terrifying.

Critic Reviews

Deeply entertaining . . . what starts as a sober morality tale we can all relate to (hypothetically!) turns into something else entirely, with tiny hints of both “Lord of the Flies” and “Rosemary’s Baby.”

New York Times
Critic Reviews

An enjoyable thriller with a pleasingly acidic streak of social satire.

Daily Mail
Critic Reviews

Another top-notch thriller from Swanson. I picked this up intending to take a quick look and was still pinned to my sofa two hours later . . . An addictive thriller that rather proves the adage: marry for money and you'll earn every penny.

Alice O'Keeffe, The Bookseller, editor's pick
Critic Reviews

Hitchcockian chills and thrills abound in Swanson's latest mystery, a twisty tale of survival and deception.

O, the Oprah Magazine
Critic Reviews

Should come with a warning to prepare for a single-sitting, reading marathon as Swanson plunges us head-first into an addictive and deftly executed mystery which positively crackles with menace and suspense.
