Praise for A Killer Harvest:
"Starting with a macabre setup, Cleave keeps upping the stakes till any scrap of plausibility is left far behind and only an increasingly effective series of hair-raising thrills remains."
– Kirkus Reviews
“Edgar-finalist Cleave makes an implausible, but very creepy, premise work in this powerful, thought-provoking novel…impressive crime thriller."
– Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Cleave, a master of dark and compelling thrillers, puts a moral spin on this twisting, chilling tale with its disturbing finale.”
Praise for TRUST NO ONE:
“A gripping thriller. TRUST NO ONE draws us into a world where truth blends with delusion. This story of a writer losing his memory and bearings pulls us into a maze where fiction blurs into murder. I couldn’t put it down.”
– Meg Gardiner, Edgar Award winning author of Phantom Instinct
"With an unexpected ending, this thriller is one to remember."
– NY Journal of Books
“This powerhouse novel plays with the subtexts at the core of the mystery genre.”
“On almost every page, this outstanding psychological thriller forces the reader to reconsider what is real.”
– Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)
“A vivid, jangled exploration of mental illness, dark imagination, and the nowhere territory in between…. Cleave spins one nightmare scenario after another out of Jerry's homely malady, leaping with such fiendish élan between past and present tense and first-person, second-person, and third-person narration that you may wonder if you've killed someone yourself.”
– Kirkus Reviews
“This one will keep you guessing until the end.”
– The Strand Magazine
"A crime writer with dementia, who can’t tell the facts from his fiction – this very clever novel did my head in time and again. Don’t skip any pages."
– Michael Robotham, CWA Gold Dagger-winning author
