Reviews

“An accomplished, disturbing debut”
(Peter Guttridge, The Observer)

“In this promising debut, journalist Seeber tackles the difficult, and horribly topical, subject of child abduction …. Jessica is a compelling character, and Lullaby is a powerful and sensitive treatment of every parent’s worst nightmare.”
(Laura Wilson, The Guardian)

“A chilling debut”
(The Bookseller)

“The tension is so high that you’ll find yourself grinding your teeth ….. even through the most traumatic sections of the book you feel that you just can’t put it down. A real tour de force, in your face, page turner …. a good start to what I hope is a long career for Seeber.”
(Charles Packer, Sci-Fi Online)

“A confident debut from journalist and documentary maker Seeber written with panache.”
(Cath Staincliffe, Tangled Web)

“An elegantly-constructed mystery about the disappearance of baby Louis and husband Mickey during a visit to the Tate Modern will have you turning the pages until the neat twist at the very end. Highly recommended.”
(Sue Magee, The Bookbag)
