Hold Your Breath is a gripping and suspenseful thriller that will captivate you from first to last page.

‘To open BP Walter’s exceptional new thriller is to step through a cellar door: the air cools, your vision dims… and just a few steps later, you’re tiptoeing across the floor, desperate to switch on a torch — yet frightened of what the light might reveal. Attention, readers of Lucy Foley and Lisa Gardner: Hold Your Breath is your next favourite read.’
A J Finn, author of The Woman in the Window

‘In Hold Your Breath, BP Walter has created a suspenseful and wonderfully creepy and claustrophobic novel. He possesses that unique talent: an ability to create flawed characters the reader can root for, weaving a heartbreakingly dark story that is so compelling we can do nothing else but read on.’
Fiona Cummins, author of The Neighbour
