The Girl in the Basement is a fast-paced thriller from the bestselling author of Flu and Plastic Jesus.
‘Best read in one sitting. The Girl in the Basement isn’t just a gut punch, it’s a heavyweight pummelling.’ —Crime Scene NI
‘Jaw-clenchingly brutal and bitterly unrelenting from start to finish.’ —DLS Reviews
‘…shocking and brilliant…’ —Bookbloke
‘A stunning read, but not for the faint hearted.’ —The Guardian on Plastic Jesus
‘With The Girl in the Basement, Simmons gives classic pulp writers a taste of their own plaid.’ —Sion Smith, Skin Deep Tattoo Magazine
‘Breathless and unrelenting, you cannot fail to turn the page and see what happens next.’ —JD Gillam, Starburst Magazine
‘A short, sharp shock to the system. Simmons grabs you from the first line of the first page and doesn’t let go. You’ll be as trapped as the Girl in the Basement herself: unable to escape or even to stop reading. Highly recommended.’ —David Moody, author of Autumn, Hater and The Cost of Living
