A taut psychological thriller about family, friendship and who you can really trust. I loved how the darkness of Ellie's dreams are balanced perfectly with the ordinary details of family life and the love she has for her three boys. Slowly, as the secrets and memories from her past unfold, I began to relax, until the final twist sent a shiver down my spine.
Her ability to conjure the detailed ordinariness of everyday domestic life makes her writing all the more powerful when she evokes psychological menace and dramatic plot twists.
A stylish and chilling account of a woman's battle to protect her family, while the past threatens to consume her. I'd like to congratulate her on another fantastic read! She gets under the complex surface of female friendship with real accuracy and insight.
The duchess of dark domestic noir strikes again. Truth Games is a helter-skelter slide of emotions and reveals. Caroline England does here what she does best - pulls emotion from her reader in tandem with pulling emotion from her characters. . . . Thrilling. . . combines great writing with a depth of knowledge of how our every day lives are often constructed to hide the harsh realities beneath. It's a clever book by a clever writer.
Unsettling and oozing with quiet menace, Truth Games is in the very top tier of psychological thrillers. Absolutely brilliant.
