Beguiling and intricate . . . brimming with her customary confidence
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.
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.
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.
