Sarah Broadhurst's view...

It has been some time since we had a new Hilary Bonner but my goodness this was certainly worth waiting for. It is a stylish, domestic, crime mystery that follows the actions of a distraught mother after she has discovered her 16-year old son hanged in his bedroom. Through a series of dreadful events which will both shock and surprise you to the last sentence, which I am still pondering over, this is one terrific read of duplicity and revenge. Truly gripping from page one to the end, it throws up an amazing series of questions and twists. Highly recommended.

If you like Hilary Bonner you might also like to read books by Ann Cleeves, Nicci French and Robert Goddard.

Synopsis

The Cruellest Game by Hilary Bonner

THE LIE WAS JUST THE BEGINNING ...Marion Anderson lives the perfect life. She has a beautiful home, a handsome and loving husband, and an intelligent and caring son. But as easily as perfect lives are built, they can also be demolished. When tragedy strikes at the heart of her family, Marion finds herself in the middle of a nightmare, with no sign of waking-up. The life she treasured is disintegrating before her very eyes, but it's just the beginning of something much worse and altogether more deadly...
