Product description

Review

'A cracking and highly original thriller. Johnstone never fails to deliver.' Author: Mark Billingham

'A subtly off-kilter speculative thriller which builds to a truly explosive ending. Once again Doug Johnstone shows why he's at the forefront of Scottish crime fiction's new guard; Fault Lines is original, ambitious but always grounded in relatable and complex characters.' Author: Eva Dolan

'Brilliantly unputdownable.' Author: Martyn Waites

Review

"A cracking and highly original thriller. Johnstone never fails to deliver." --Mark Billingham, author, Lazybones


"An original and addictive thriller,
Fault Lines is as intelligent as it is shocking." ​--Foreword Reviews

"A superb, highly original psychological chiller.
Fault Lines is a masterclass in suspense." --Steve Cavanagh, author, The Defense


"a cracking-good thriller with some seriously good writing and some beautifully designed characters...Downright brilliant." --
Booklist

"Johnstone is Scotland's truest exponent of noir. He writes novels that are punchy, fast-paced and sometimes gruellingly dark; unflinchingly challenging his readers by taking them to places that are emotionally and ideologically uncomfortable." --Chris Brookmyre


"A subtly off-kilter speculative thriller that builds to a truly explosive ending." --Eva Dolan



"A pacey, gripping read." --Louise Voss

"Brilliantly unputdownable." --Martyn Waites

"Johnstone weaves his compelling and original tale with great skill and elegance from the gripping beginning to a tense and explosive ending." --Amanda Jennings

"Richly characterised, beautifully crafted, this is a book that you truly inhabit." --Emma Kavanagh

"Sexy, fearless and addictive." --Helen FitzGerald

'You don't read
Fault Lines so much as you white-knuckle your way through its twists and turns, toward its thrilling end, your breath held and your nerves tingling. And it's as psychologically rich as it is harrowing. I've come to expect nothing less from Doug Johnstone, one of the genre's premiere writers." --Megan Abbott, author, You Will Know Me
