The Book Club

The Book Club

‘Edge-of-seat gripping’ Sophie Hannah

‘I raced through it – edgy, tense’ Harriet Tyce

‘I for one am terrified of the woman next door!’ Louise Candlish

‘Dark, twisty, claustrophobic’ Jo Spain


The book club was her idea, of course.

It was her way into our group. A chance to get close.

I knew from the day she arrived that she couldn’t be trusted.

And I was right.

Alice didn’t come to the village for peace and quiet.

She came for revenge.


‘Couldn’t put it down! Brilliant read from start to finish . . . If you love a gripping read this is the book for you

Seriously page-turning, totally gripping . . . the twist at the end really surprised me’

‘Get your book club to read The Book Club!’

Wow, what a page turner. Had trouble sleeping because I wanted to finish this book so much

Captivating . . . full of teasing clues, dark humour, and brilliantly observed characters

So creepy and gripping and brilliant!

‘Excellent. One of the best psychological thrillers . . . Superb characterisation and a plot that you won’t untangle easily’

‘This is a thrilling read . . . found it hard to put down once I’d started’

‘Wow! Such addictive reading!’

Loved this book. Just as you think you know where it’s leading, it sets doubts in your mind and keeps you guessing

Gripping to the last page . . . I couldn’t put it down!’

‘A great book that keeps you guessing’

A fabulous, page-turning read! Beautifully written and I loved the humour . . . Highly recommended!
Caroline England
A dark, twisty, claustrophobic read. I love those locked room novels (albeit locked village in this case!) . . . A thrilling psychological debut
Jo Spain
Intuitive and addictive - a great debut
Alison Bruce
Intricately plotted, this gripping thriller is written with great style and has a host of wonderful characters to be loved and hated in equal measure
Lisa Ballantyne
An irresistible slow descent into darkness, with twist upon twist upon twist. C.J. Cooper's page-turner debut kept on surprising me right to the end. Brava!
Catriona McPherson
Smart, sassy . . . Midsomer Murders meets Desperate Housewives. Immensely entertaining, the growing sense of menace - of 'where have I seen you before?' - grips and chills in equal measures. An excellent confident debut!
Cath Weeks
I raced through it - edgy, tense and wry with great foreshadowing. No one has ever asked me to join a book club - now I think it's for the best!
Harriet Tyce
Just finished The Book Club and I for one am terrified of the woman next door!
Louise Candlish
I loved this book - tightly plotted, edge-of-seat gripping and likely to make you want to avoid book groups for the foreseeable future!
