Shallow Grave meets The Secret History in this quirky psychological thriller
Bristol, 1988. Five young graduates on the threshold of their careers buy a house together in order to get a foot on the property ladder before prices spiral out of their reach. But it soon becomes the house share from hell.
After their New Year’s Eve party, they discover a body – and it’s clear they’ll be the first suspects. As each of them has a good reason from their past not to trust the police, they come up with a solution – one which forces them into a life of secrets and lies. But can they trust each other?
“The hugely talented Katharine Johnson has, again delivered a tense thriller! This is a compelling novel – up there with Erin Kelly and Sophie Hannah.”
~Val Penny, author of The Edinburgh Crime Mysteries.~
“Gripping and frighteningly realistic. The twists and turns kept me guessing to the very end.”
~Jo Fenton, author of The Brotherhood.~
An amazing psychological suspense thriller that had me on the edge of my seat!!!
Five university graduates who all work at the same place decide to buy a house together. At first, it seems like a great idea. Emily, Xanthe, Stuart, Zak, and Imogene are on their best behavior with one another, but it doesn’t take long before the cracks in their arrangement begin to appear. Finding a dead body in their basement on New Year’s Eve doesn’t make it any better. That night would have far-reaching consequences for the five housemates.
Secrets, lies, and betrayals are at this heart of this book. There are so many twists and turns, but all will be revealed by the end. I know I’m not revealing much, but I can’t! I wouldn’t want to spoil a thing for those who haven’t read this one! Once you start, you won’t come up for air until the last page is finished.
The author has an amazing talent in building the suspense. By the end of every chapter, she would add some foreshadowing that would be another twist in the story! If you are looking for a nail-biter of a book, The Suspects is not to be missed!!!!
