Review

One of Travel and Leisure's 20 Most Anticipated Books of Summer 2020!
A Frolic Most Anticipated Book of Summer 2020!

"I absolutely devoured The Safe Place, and lived and breathed every second. The images Anna Downes creates are so vivid and real that I was transported between Soho and France in the flick of an eye. I had no idea where it was going; I just knew I had to hold onto Emily's coattails and go along for the ride. This one is going to fly! If you love a suspense thriller with a punch, I'd highly recommend The Safe Place."--Sandie Jones, New York Times bestselling author of The Other Woman

"The Safe Place is such a rare thing--a claustrophobic, addictive thriller that lets you actually feel for all of the characters involved. Anna Downes has such skill in combining the heart-in-mouth feeling that everything is building to a disaster with genuine emotion. I was right behind her as she chose this big change in her life, and in a strange way, right behind Scott and Nina, too, whose stories were heartbreaking."--Gytha Lodge, bestselling author of She Lies in Wait

"The Safe Place is a brilliantly atmospheric novel that keeps you equally gripped and unsettled from page one. Starkly original and with an alarmingly plausible premise, this is destined to be a bestseller."--J.P. Pomare, bestselling author of Call Me Evie

"The Safe Place is a dark and wonderful debut that lulls you in with beautiful prose and complex, believable characters, then beats you over the head with a killer plot and a thrilling climax. It's the kind of book you race through as quickly as you can so you can start it again. Everyone will be talking about this book!"--Christian White, internationally bestselling author of The Nowhere Child and The Wife and the Widow

"The tension ratchets up and up in this beautifully paced thriller--an outstanding debut, populated by complex and sympathetic characters. You'll be thinking about them long after you've finished reading. Destined to be a book club favorite."--Chris Hammer, international bestselling author of Scrublands

"I loved The Safe Place . . . it was tense and atmospheric with the seemingly idyllic yet eerie setting. A truly gripping read."--Karen Hamilton, author of The Perfect Girlfriend

About the Author

ANNA DOWNES was born and raised in Sheffield, UK, but now lives just north of Sydney, Australia with her husband and two children. She worked as an actress before turning her attention to writing. She was shortlisted for the Sydney Writers Room Short Story Prize (2017) and longlisted for the Margaret River Short Story Competition (2018). The Safe Place was inspired by Anna's experiences working as a live-in housekeeper on a remote French estate in 2009-10. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
