Review

"The perfect read for lovers of domestic suspense with a hint of crime fiction." The Suspense is Thrilling Me
"Johnstone wastes no time getting to the plot, and each page turn has new plot reveals [and] more excellent character development." The Bandar Blog
"[an] emotionally driven read...it surprises you until the very end." Book Savvy Reviews"

"What sets [Johnstone] apart from many writers in the genre is the sheer realism in his writing. His characters are everyday people who live and breathe on the page and go to stunning but completely believable lengths to survive the horrifying situations they're thrust into." --
New York Journal of Books

Gone Girl and Mystic River will most likely enjoy The Jump as well....[it] is an intriguing, page-turning thriller and a worthy addition to any summer beach reading list." --The Reader's Room

"A beautifully written novel that spoke to me in so many ways...this book will definitely stick with you after you read it." --Novel Ink
