Praise for LITTLE COMFORT
"A chilling mix of envy, deceit, and murder. Everyone is lying about something in this tense, stylish debut novel. . . . [It] will have you frantically turning pages until the final, breathless climax.”
- Joanna Schaffhausen, author of The Vanishing Season
"In his compelling debut novel Little Comfort, Edwin Hill spins layer upon layer of intrigue as Hester Thursby, in the business of finding people who don’t want to be found, takes on a job that turns out to be far more surprising and dangerous than she bargained for. This smart, complex, and suspenseful New England thriller will keep you turning pages far into the night."
- Jessica Treadway, author of Lacy Eye and How Will I Know You?
“Compellingly plotted and compulsively readable, Little Comfort will leave you a little uncomfortable in the best of ways. Hester Thursby, its powerhouse protagonist, is tough, intriguingly flawed and complex. Edwin Hill’s first effort is certain to be among the year’s best debuts.”
—John Keyse-Walker, author of Beach, Breeze, Bloodshed and winner of the 2015 Minotaur Books/Mystery Writers of America First Crime Novel Award
"Fast-paced and riveting, Edwin Hill’s Little Comfort takes off from the opening pages and never lets up. Don’t miss this can’t-put-down debut!"
- Carla Neggers, best-selling author of the Sharpe and Donovan series
