Praise for A Double Life:
‘She is a hugely original and talented writer; I can't wait to read her next book’ JANE CASEY
‘A Double Life confirms Charlotte Philby as the mistress of a sub-genre she basically invented, dealing in the dangerous area where working motherhood and international espionage collide. Heart-breaking, gripping and always beautifully written, I can’t wait to see what she does next’ ERIN KELLY
‘A seriously stylish, hugely compelling mystery: Charlotte Philby redefines a male-dominated genre with her brilliantly complex female characters. I was utterly gripped’ LUCY FOLEY
‘Philby is creating her own niche of beautifully observed, fast-paced, multi-layered novels that invite the reader to view the world from a fresh new angle. A Double Life is a wonderful novel” HOLLY WATT
