Praise for The Playdate

“Engrossing psychological drama . . . a real page-turner with lots of suspense”

Irish Examiner

“A quietly gripping thriller that takes in the power dynamics of the school gates”

The Irish Independent

“A finely plotted book, one to be read in a single sitting. There are some jaw-dropping twists, yet it feels plausible”

Sue Leonard , Irish Examiner

“You cannot put it down . . . an absolute page-turner”

Claire Byrne,Today with Claire Byrne, RTÉ Radio 1

“A story that gets very dark indeed”

The Sunday Independent

“Grips you with a stranglehold from the get-go”

The Gloss

“Fiendishly plotted and immensely entertaining. Perfect for fans of Andrea Mara or Ashley Audrain”

Liz Nugent

“Original, dark, and brilliantly observed, The Playdate is utterly absorbing. A one-sitting read”

Andrea Mara

“The stuff of suburban nightmares. Dillon has written an expertly crafted book that is both compulsively readable and leaves you feeling uncomfortable, because of how close to reality it feels. With an ending you won’t see coming, it’ll have you glued to every page, tensely awaiting this tidy group of yummy-mummies to combust”

Disha Bose

“A terrifying, taut thrill-ride that'll have your heart thumping and your mind whirring – terrific!”
