A Game for All the Family

‘One of the great unmissables of this genre – intelligent, classy and with a wonderfully Gothic imagination’The Times

He’s not your son. It’s not up to you to save him. But you have to try.

After escaping London and a career that nearly destroyed her, Justine plans to spend her days doing as little as possible in her beautiful home in Devon.

But soon after the move, her daughter Ellen starts to withdraw when her new best friend, George, is unfairly expelled from school. Justine begs the head teacher to reconsider, only to be told that nobody’s been expelled – there is, and was, no George.

Reviews

Beguiling and intricate . . . brimming with her customary confidence
Daily Mail
Superb
Heat
For readers hoping to beat Hannah to the conclusion, the twisting plot is not only enthralling but uniquely challenging. This is another spellbinding book from a novelist whose ability to turn domestic setting into a forum for high drama is difficult to match.
Daily Express
Hannah - like Patricia Highsmith and Ruth Rendell before her - is an expert at exploring the delicate line between the ordinary and the monstrous . . . A GAME FOR ALL THE FAMILY is the product of an author with an extraordinary imagination, working at the height of her powers.
Independent
Hannah has become renowned for her psychological thrillers and has never been more imaginative than she is here, in a plot all the more unsettling, as madness shades into evil, for its quotidian setting.

Deliciously creepy
