“The book has something—drive, pace, a feeling for the Dublin city centre drug scene and the welfare class milieu—and particularly a really well-judged scale. The number of players, the speed of the plot and the extent to which they interact with each other have a satisfying correctness to them.” – Books Ireland.
“Farrell’s writing is taut and grabs your attention immediately.” – Cornflakegirlsmusings. Blog Review
“An amazing read. I found it dark and captivating. Opened my eyes to the Dark Underworld of Dublin.” – BookBanter, Dundalk FM
“Lady Beth is a perfectly paced page-turner of a novel which keeps the tension taut at all times. The darker side of Dublin city is perfectly judged, with well-rounded characters filling out the scenes around the titular Beth. Beth herself is a fantastic character moving seamlessly from unassuming office worker to avenging mother with an impressive lack of melodrama. Caroline has a filmic eye and the book swirls with a wonderful noir atmosphere as Beth digs deep into her past in order to build herself a future.” – 746books.com
“I found the entire cast of characters fascinating, and was truly rooting for Beth all the way through.
A truly powerful read. I very much recommend it.” Don Jimmy Reviews
