(Great read! Loved it etc.)

Marian Greenall: An interesting and witty book
•19th March, 2019
• Verified Purchase Format: Paperback
I particularly enjoyed the characterisation, especially the throwbacks to her Glasgow childhood. It was very readable and I thought she had a good command of the English language. Although it was rather dark in some places, that was balanced by the heart-warming reminiscences.

I’m not one for reviewing but felt I just had to recommend this book. What a great read, once I started and couldn’t put it down. Two very late nights to finish it. Cannot wait for another from the author.

Tinmum: Twists and turns that keep you hooked!

A great story highlighting how dark the days can get, full of conspiracy, suspense and despair. Won’t do any spoilers but I hadn’t a clue who the mastermind behind it all was – great twists along the way. Lots of brilliant humour too and Scottish mentions which I loved.

Amazon Customer: Well worth a read

A well written and clever thriller from a up and coming Scottish author. Lots of twists and turns I never seen coming. I hope a sequel is forthcoming.

Great read,witty one liners. Great twist at the end. Can’t wait for the second one as so many unanswered questions about the twist. A few late nights to finish this off which I don’t normally do.

What a great read, had to keep going to see how it turned out. Great humour in here which balanced such a dark tale. You feel like you know the characters personally and feel an affinity towards them. Hopefully another book to follow!

Hi Jan, having read and thoroughly enjoyed your book I wanted to make an observation if I may. Nine years ago I lost my eldest son to suicide. It was and still is devastating, it always will be. I have always struggled, when asked, to explain how I have felt since, that is until now. Page 32, 2nd chapter of Transference is amazingly poignant for me. I think you have been inside my head and my heart and taken the words I haven’t been able to string together, no matter how hard I have tried. In doing so you have brought a little piece of comfort to broken heart, thank you for writing this.

Absolutely fantastic story filled with twists and turns. A unique story that is both heartwarming and heart wrenching at times all with true Glaswegian humour to lift your spirits. Careful though once you start reading it’s impossible to put down!

Good humour absorbed into this dystopian novel with poignant tales involving children, money, betrayals. Characters are relatable. Loved it. Can’t wait for a follow up book.

LJ Pheonix: A real page turner that keeps you hooked!

What an amazing book, Lauren felt real like me rather than a typical heroine in a book. There were times I sat giggling at her perspective on life, and then there were the moments where I just could not figure out what would happen next. The story kept you hooked until the last line (to the point I was shouted at for having the bedroom light on at 2.30am because I could not put it down), and I am still hooked now because of the jaw dropping ending! I cannot wait to see what happens next in this dystopian world!

Hazel Butterfield: Hurry up with the next one…

This is a dystopian novel like no other, an unputdownable thriller with a Scottish (Glaswegian) personable edge. A bit like if Kevin Bridges kept on popping up in the Handmaids Tale. I give to you Jan McPeake’s Transference. If you’re rich and in the inner circle, you’re safe so long as you can get the poor to give up their young to maintain your existence, due the public accepting your supremacy. Which is simpler than you think with the right spin doctors. Scarily so. Hello future. Where paranoia, espionage, sibling rivalry and elitism meet love, dystopia and self realisation. Don’t worry, when you read it and love it, I assure you, there’s more to come…

This was great from start to finish. I could hardly put it down! Different from the usual books I normally read. I tend to stick my crime thrillers. But i am definitely looking forward to the next book from Jan!

Maggie Lindsay: A great read – deep and dark interspersed with on-point Glasgow humour!

Jan McPeake is an excellent story teller! A dark and gripping concept but with an easily read-able style. Be prepared to lose a day or two to this book, it’s very hard to put down. I live in hope of a TV drama remake, or at least a second installment!

What an amazing book !! From the minute I read the first chapter I knew I wasn’t going to be able to put it down ….. I haven’t been able to put it down …. I’ve burnt my dinner …. I’ve lost count how many dinners I’ve burnt because of this book ….. even my husband knows when I’ve been reading the book and for how long too…. he estimates how long I’ve been reading the book by how cremated the dinner is !! I have bought everyone a book for Christmas and I’m sure there will be a few more burnt dinners as a result ! Jan McPeake…. you star you !! What a fabulous Author you are. I really can’t wait for the second book ! Love, happiness and big dreams Your number 1 Fan !! Xxx xx
