Revue de presse :

From beginning to end China Lake is a book that no reader of thrillers will be able to put down. Great characters, dynamic plot, nail-biting action - Meg Gardiner gives us everything. (Elizabeth George)

Terrifying, fast-paced well-written, race-against-time US tale, with a child needing to be rescued from a scary religious cult. It has a terrific hot-tempered heroine, who, I believe, is to star in more to come. Great stuff. (Sarah Broadhurst, Bookseller)

Meg Gardiner's . . . certainly arrived with a bang. She swiftly and smoothly lures you into the plot, and, by the time you've realised it, you're already locked in its vice-like grip . . . rocked by what you've read, yet enthralled at the same time. (Alex Gordon, Peterborough Evening Telegraph)

compelling tale, a powerful mix of murder, terrorism and a wealth of dark secrets. ( Publishing News)

With a colourful cast of richly delineated characters, a protagonist with whom the readers will easily identify - all big-hearted, quick-tongued and hair-trigger-tempered - this novel provides a fast-paced ride through some of the more dubious nooks and crannies of the American dream and is an impressive opening salvo by a Surrey-based expatriate who hits the bookshelves running. (Maxim Jakubowski, Guardian)

What sets China Lake apart . . . is the quality of Gardiner's writing. She has a way of capturing a character or place with a single line of epigrammatic prose. . . Readers everywhere will welcome Gardiner into the halls of praise frequented by fellow authors Patricia Cornwell and Kathy Reichs with this ebullient debut of a hot-tempered, kind-hearted and clever heroine. (Waterstone's Books Quarterly)

With energetic, punchy prose and a breathless, action-thriller plot, China Lake is an assured debut. Evan Delaney is a great character and Gardiner a writer to watch. (Tangled Web)

Sure-footed, action-packed ( Bookseller)

China Lake makes a strong impression. The story grips and Ms Gardiner is a welcome addition to the ranks of American thriller writers. ( Sunday Telegraph)

A colourful cast of richly delineated characters, a protagonist with whom the reader will easily identify, all big-hearted, quick-tongued and trigger-hair tempered, this is a fast paced ride through some of the more dubious nooks and crannies of the American dream . . . an impressive opening salvo (Crime Time)

With energetic, punchy prose and a breathless, action-thriller plot, China Lake is an assured debut. Evan Delaney is a great character, and Gardiner is a writer to watch. ( Manchester Evening News)

A great first novel. Fast and hard-edged. Buy it, read it ( Hull Daily Mail)

Meg Gardiner's writing crackles with energy ( Writers Forum)

This is . . . a cracker, with memorable characters, memorable lines and a plot that races along to an explosive ending. A great summer read. ( Huddersfield Daily Examiner)

Religious fundamentalism, anti-Aids crusaders, nutty relatives, and a Waco-style shootout: they're all here in the exciting mix that Gardiner expertly stirs up. Great stuff. ( Independent on Sunday)
