Thorne Moore delves deep into the dark corners of a mind disturbed by the wicked acts of childhood that refuse to stay hidden in this edgy psychological thriller.

A simple, innocent moment unlocks memories that have long been buried and the more they begin to surface the further Karen's mental health begins to deteriorate. This novel had me holding my breath in places as the darkness and shear desperation that Karen feels come leaping from the pages. Thorne captures the disjointedness of Karen’s mind perfectly and her life begins to gradually unravel as she becomes obsessed with her quest to track down old school friends and the much revered Serena Whinn. The full horror of what happened all those years ago is slowly revealed and Karen discovers that children’s games can be very dangerous indeed and the shocking after effects reverberate through this gripping, chilling novel. ~ Shelley Fallows

Synopsis

The Unravelling by Thorne Moore

Middle-aged Karen is suddenly reminded of an incident from her childhood and just as suddenly finding Serena Whinn becomes an obsession. As she tracks down her playmates from Marsh Green Junior School, Karen finds herself on a journey into a land of secrets and lies. Getting to the truth, finding Serena Whinn, means upsetting the careful attempts all the girls have made to build normal lives for themselves in the aftermath of the disappearance of poor little Janice. Everyone wanted to be Serena’s friend, but doing so meant proving your worth and doing that often had consequences it wasn’t nice to think about…even thirty-five years on.

But Karen’s memories of Janice and Serena are not to be trusted, and only when she finally confronts Serena is the real danger revealed.

Reviews

"Compulsive, dark and utterly fascinating, this book looks at how seemingly innocent games can have consequences bigger than a child can have the scope to imagine, and how they can inform the person you become. A dangerous snake of a book – read and beware." Charlotte Foreman, BestChickLit.com

"this is one of those books that haunts you for as long as you're reading, and stays with you long after you've finished." Anne Williams, Being Anne...

"Thorne Moore knows how to build up a tale with layers of tension for the reader to unpeel, this was a pleasure to read." Rosie Amber

"The Unravelling is both an unravelling of manipulation and pretence as well as an unravelling of the mind, as Karen delves into her own memory and confronts the ghosts of her childhood. But it is also cathartic. It is a thrilling read, and believable too." Rachel Carney, Created to Read

"This is a fascinating read of the unearthing of a secret hidden so deeply that it goes beyond the reach of memory – and a wonderful layering of the fragility of sanity. .. I resented every time it was necessary to stop reading – to come out of the world of these characters. I cannot recommend The Unravelling enough; it’s a novel that should be on every readers ‘To Be Read’ list" Judith Barrow
