Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

I had such a range of emotions from curiosity mingled with dread and horror as I realised what was happening. An incredibly accomplished debut.  Jenny Blackhurst, author of How I Lost You
Beautifully insidious, a novel that outwits expectation at every turn. Francis Spufford, author of Golden Hill  
A taut and spellbinding look at creative darkness and the price we pay when art bleeds into real life. I couldn't put this book down! Amy Engel, author of The Roanoke Girls “A smart, confident thriller, Exhibit Alexandra asks searching questions about motherhood and identity, and keeps you guessing to the very last page. Natasha Bell writes thought-provokingly about home, love, belonging - and what else a woman might want from life.
An intelligent, taut thriller which was beautifully written and compelling. I loved how the author played with the whole theme of life imitating art. Full of twists and turns I couldn’t put it down. I thought the ending was perfect!  Claire Douglas, author of Last Seen Alive
“I adored Exhibit Alexandra. I thought it was a smart, original page turner which really brought something different to the thriller genre. It kept me up half the night! Gillian McAllister, author of Anything You Do Say
“A moody, gut-wrenching tale of domestic ennui, feminism, and identity, recommended for literary-thriller devotees and book groups.   Booklist
An astutely written, complex debut.  The Guardian
[A] provocative debut thriller...the full extent of [Bell's] audacity only becomes evident toward the end of this ingenious optical illusion...On one level a gripping page-turner and on another a disturbing exploration of identity, art, and decency, Bell's daring performance can't be ignored. Publishers Weekly (starred)
Bell gives us all the clues and dares us to follow them to the shocking end. This smart, mirror maze of a thriller bristles with sharp edges, twisting familiar Gone Girl themes into Bell’s own intense creation.  Kirkus
