Book review: Disclaimer


Renee Knight Doubleday, €16.99; ebook, €10.99

The literary world welcomes a new voice this month in the form of Renee Knight, a documentary maker for the BBC, whose debut novel, Disclaimer, is published by Transworld’s imprint Doubleday.

After finding an unfamiliar book, called The Perfect Stranger, in her home, Catherine is plunged into a nightmare, as she discovers the story is about her, but not only that, it’s about a dark secret from her past that nobody else knows about — or so she thought.

As her world falls apart, she is forced to confront the terrible event that she thought was buried and uncover the identity of the author who has opened up old wounds.

A rough-hewn thriller about grief and guilt, with a delicious mystery at its centre, Renee has created a compelling story that will have readers racing to finish it in one sitting.
