Bookseller and Publisher Magazine

James has cleverly crafted this novel in true thriller style, making the reader second-guess at every opportunity. Where Have You Been? is a novel you’ll not want to put down.

Sara Dowse - Sydney Morning Herald

The narrative’s power and cumulative suspense call to mind Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo.

Katharine England - Adelaide Advertiser

Wendy James’s third novel is structured like a symphony…. Skilful structuring, fine, flexible writing and suspense that comes to a satisfying, if not limitingly cut-and-dried conclusion, make this social-realist novel as hard to put down as any thriller.

Cameron Woodhead - The Age

With Where Have You Been? Wendy James proves herself a master of suburban suspense.
