Besides getting brilliant reviews and having her two first books in the Fog Island Trilogy on the absolute top on the toplists, Mariette Lindstein wins The Crimetime Specsaver's debutant Prize, for THE CULT ON FOG ISLAND, here is the jury's reasoning:
”Over 500 pages are completely devoured. Both the jury and the many readers who voted were unanimous – the book is impossible to put down. The language is unpretentious. The feeling of a documentary novel makes it stick out on the overcrowded crime novel shelves. The author writes about a secluded world in a way that is extremely believable and fascinating. A suspense novel about what makes people go through hell and high water because of the desire to belong. This is the first in a new fiction trilogy – we really look forward to the continuation.”
