With such a brilliant premise (how has no-one thought of this before?!) and glowing reviews, I was looking forward to reading Disclaimer very much. Which is perhaps partly why I was so disappointed…
The blurb: Finding a mysterious novel at her bedside plunges documentary filmmaker Catherine Ravenscroft into a living nightmare. Though ostensibly fiction, The Perfect Stranger recreates in vivid, unmistakable detail the terrible day Catherine became hostage to a dark secret, a secret that only one other person knew–and that person is dead. Now that the past is catching up with her, Catherine’s world is falling apart. Her only hope is to confront what really happened on that awful day even if the shocking truth might destroy her.
I have thought very hard about why I didn’t enjoy this book. I know I’m in the minority and if you’re a fan of the suspense/thriller genre perhaps you should still give it a go.
