The Suspects

Author – Katherine Johnson.

Katharine Johnson was born in Bristol and now lives in Berkshire. She’s worked as a journalist on lots of magazines and has written a history book about Windsor. When not writing you’ll usually find her with a book in one hand and a coffee in the other, restoring a house in Italy, walking her spaniel or playing netball (although not usually at the same time.)

The Suspects by Katharine Johnson

Shallow Grave meets The Secret History in this quirky psychological thriller

Bristol, 1988. Five young graduates on the threshold of their careers buy a house together in order to get a foot on the property ladder before prices spiral out of their reach. But it soon becomes the house share from hell.

After their New Year’s Eve party, they discover a body – and it’s clear they’ll be the first suspects. As each of them has a good reason from their past not to trust the police, they come up with a solution – one which forces them into a life of secrets and lies. But can they trust each other?

“The hugely talented Katharine Johnson has, again delivered a tense thriller! This is a compelling novel – up there with Erin Kelly and Sophie Hannah.”

Val Penny, author of The Edinburgh Crime Mysteries.

“Gripping and frighteningly realistic. The twists and turns kept me guessing to the very end.”

Jo Fenton, author of The Brotherhood.

Today is my stop on The Suspects blog tour.  Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – This is a great read, full of suspense as you try to work out ‘whodunnit’.

Emily decides to share a house with her friends and despite some of their quirks, they all get on well, until they find a body in the house.  The body has been there for some time and they are now aware they will all be suspects, so what do they do?

What I liked about this book was how the author shows the different relationships start to disintegrate.  No one knows the body got there,so is one of them a killer? Their once close knit group crumbles as accusations fly and doubt lingers.

Will they stick together or will they save themselves?
