    Samantha Downing shows how to pack a punch in her latest phenomenal thriller, HE STARTED IT. A twisty, sneaking tale of greed, lies and betrayal, with each character more conniving than the next and an ending that will make your heart stop. This one needs to be on the top of everyone's to-read list! ...more

    What an aggravating tease. Ugh I want this book in my hands so badly. This sounds like cool; the book better live up to the hype.

    We have to wait until June 2020 to get another Samantha Downing book? Ugh. I'll wait, I'll wait. But after the masterpiece that was My Lovely Wife, I'm excited. Come sooner, 2020...

    Fun, fun, fun! If you're already a fan from her sensational debut, My Lovely Wife, then you know what I mean when I say this writer has a special voice. Clean, sharp, witty narration will put a mischievous smile on your face every time you turn a page. And of course, there are plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing.
    Christina McDonald
    A wicked-fun read with razor-sharp wit and a killer twist, He Started It is compelling, captivating, and deliciously dark. Samantha Downing writes with a wry, sparse elegance that steadily entangles you until you’re utterly addicted.

    In He Started It, we get three unapologetically sinister siblings heading out on a road trip to fulfil their wealthy grandfather’s final wish and secure their inheritance. But none of them are exactly who they seem.

    Like My Lovely Wife, He Started It blurs the line

    I literally CAN’T wait for this book to be in my hands. The synopsis is full of elements I love and the plot sounds so intricate I’m already mindblown
    June 2020, where are you?

    Sibling rivalry reaches new and downright despicable heights in HE STARTED IT, a novel where nothing is as it seems, and no one can be trusted. Creepy, unnerving and deliciously evil, Samantha Downing is one of the boldest authors I know. This will no doubt be a must read book of 2020!

    Samantha Downing is an absolute genius at creating twisted characters you’re desperate to follow. HE STARTED IT is superbly structured, deliciously dark, and kept me guessing, heart pounding, through every single razor-sharp sentence. A psychological thriller like none other, this addictive read is impossible to put down. I received an advanced reader copy.
