    If you trust me at all, then trust me on this one Take a chance and read it Disclaimer It took me awhile to get into this I had almost given up, but then From the reviews I m reading I liked Disclaimerthan some The Hook The blurbWhat if you realized the terrifying book you were reading was all about youCome on now, isn t that enough to reel you in The LineAll I felt was soft filth, and it got into my skin and under my fingernails, and its stink invaded my nostrils, clingin If you trust me at all, then trust me on this one Take a chance and read it Disclaimer It took me awhile to get into this I had almost given up, but then From the reviews I m reading I liked Disclaimerthan some The Hook The blurbWhat if you realized the terrifying book you were reading was all about youCome on now, isn t that enough to reel you in The LineAll I felt was soft filth, and it got into my skin and under my fingernails, and its stink invaded my nostrils, clinging to the hairs, soaking up into the tiny blood vessels and polluting my entire system.The Sinker Catherine Ravenscroft soon realizes the book she finds by her beside is farsinister than a light work of fiction She s intrigued by this suspenseful story The Perfect Stranger until she realizes it s all about her Where did it come from Who wrote it And why was it left for her It threatens to expose a secret from her past, one she thought hidden for all time, the consequences which could topple her very existence.Ren e Knight plotted this psychological tale with precision A satisfying read with questions we all struggle to answer How well do we know our spouses How strong is love How well do we know our children Would we lie for them Do we see them as others do Do we put them first, even before our spouses What do we see but deny Do we want to know the truth Who do we trust Disclaimer is about two marriages, two families, two boys, two sons It is thought provoking It s a book within a book, its pages filled with revenge, betrayal, love, guilt, bravery, sadness, and brimming with human emotion I thought I would scream if someone compared it to Gone Girl but they already have Be warned this is no copycat Knight earns the excitement that her debut deserves

    With a couple of reservations, I found Disclaimer by Ren e Knight to be well written, engrossing and quite chilling.Catherine, a documentary film maker is given a book She is extremely disturbed to find that the book s leading character is herself Many years ago a terrible incident occurred an incident that Catherine has never come to terms with, has buried and tried to erase The book brings the poison flooding back and threatens to destroy her.The story is told mainly through two viewpoints With a couple of reservations, I found Disclaimer by Ren e Knight to be well written, engrossing and quite chilling.Catherine, a documentary film maker is given a book She is extremely disturbed to find that the book s leading character is herself Many years ago a terrible incident occurred an incident that Catherine has never come to terms with, has buried and tried to erase The book brings the poison flooding back and threatens to destroy her.The story is told mainly through two viewpoints, which works well and the tension builds effectively It s a tale of betrayal, obsession and growing paranoia.There s also a sadness that seeps through the narrative.My only issue with the book was with a specific narrative device Psychological thriller writers often build a clever artifice, an arrangement of selective facts that create an assumed reality a reality that comes tumbling down the minute a new fact or perspective is added i.e a big surprise for the reader With Disclaimer however, it s a little different.In the first half of the novel especially, you are very aware that secrets are being kept from you, names are purposely omitted, events are deliberately jumbled chronologically and who said what is disguised There is so much open misdirection and obvious omission that it almost feels like a taunt At times intriguing, at times irritating But, even with this in mind the inner lives and motivations of the main characters are well explored and I was always totally involved, gripped even I looked forward to picking up this book to find out how things would end Hence the solid 4 star score A superior thriller in my humble opinion

    I m learning to be less bothered about hype I ve said over and over again that most of the hyped and praised and hotly anticipated books I ve read this year have been thoroughly mediocre, and yet only recently has it occurred to me that of course they are it s mediocre books that sell the most Hype still gets to me, I easily get caught up in the must read this first excitement, but I no longer expect it to actually mean a truly great book Disclaimer is a classic case in point a much talke I m learning to be less bothered about hype I ve said over and over again that most of the hyped and praised and hotly anticipated books I ve read this year have been thoroughly mediocre, and yet only recently has it occurred to me that of course they are it s mediocre books that sell the most Hype still gets to me, I easily get caught up in the must read this first excitement, but I no longer expect it to actually mean a truly great book Disclaimer is a classic case in point a much talked about debut suspense novel that sparked a bidding war and is already set to be translated into 20 languages you know the drill In alternate chapters, it tells the stories of forty something film producer Catherine and retired teacher Stephen Brigstocke, starting with Catherine s discovery of a book apparently left on her bedside table which, she finds, is about a part of her life she s managed to keep secret for twenty years Convinced the author s revenge tactic will tear her family apart, Catherine becomes obsessed with finding out who has written it, and why But what is this oh so terrible secret And how are Catherine and Stephen, who becomesandof a sinister figure as the plot progresses, linked As happens so often with these novels, the secret , when it s revealed, appears at first to be mundane and really pretty ordinary compared to the desperate paranoia and fear that s come before it But there is a twist, and that was something I hadn t expected on the whole, this isn t really a twisty book, at least not in that manufactured multiple cliffhanger way Unfortunately, view spoiler it involves a rape scene I really thought I was going to be able to make it through a crime thriller novel without one, but yet again, no However, I did feel that the issue was handled very well at the end Stephen s acceptance of Catherine s story, the comparison Catherine makes between Robert s reaction to the affair then the rape, and her decision thereafter hide spoiler.The biggest fault with Disclaimer is just that it isn t particularly well written There are advantages to the plain language especially the fact that it doesn t go into detail about unnecessary things no lengthy descriptions of what people had for dinner or dropping of middle class brand names , but overall it s a bit flat, and the punctuation is awful, although that s something I am assuming but can t be sure will be amended in the published version.However, the story really is extremely compelling After the halfway mark, it becomes pretty much unputdownable There is an unexpected elegance to the plot that makes it work it better than many similar books I ve read The character of Stephen, in particular, is realised and developed very well Catherine remains rather distant, but I suppose this is intentional, to keep the reader guessing about whether she s supposed to be sympathetic or not.There was something I found curiously nostalgic about this book I m not sure if that was because it reminded me of something specific, or because it reminded me generally of a type of book I used to read when I was younger When I was in my teens I went through a crime phase and read loads of Agatha Christie, then moved on to stuff like Minette Walters and Barbara Vine this brought memories of those books back to me, even though I can hardly remember any of the titles of those I read Disclaimer will no doubt be marketed as a psychological thriller, but it doesn t have a lot of the typical characteristics of that genre as it s now understood It isof a suspenseful mystery, and if you take away the references to modern technology, the story could just as easily be set 50 or 60 years ago as in the present day.Does Disclaimer justify its hype In terms of the audience it s meant to attract, the answer is probably yes It s gripping, tightly plotted and emotive, the type of story that will have people on the edge of their seats staying up all night recommending it to everyone at work, etc Still, there s something a bit empty and soulless about it, and I doubt it will prove to be very memorable

    Another psychological thriller that s good enough, but not great.I liked the unsettling premise of picking up a book in which your darkest secret is laid bare For those of us who read a lot, it is exactly the kind of what if that hits closest to home I spend a lot of time wishing I was in certain books, but on reflection, am pretty happy i m not, especially in the starring role My turbulent past can stay there, thank you very much.Beyond that, Knight does well with the trials and misunderst Another psychological thriller that s good enough, but not great.I liked the unsettling premise of picking up a book in which your darkest secret is laid bare For those of us who read a lot, it is exactly the kind of what if that hits closest to home I spend a lot of time wishing I was in certain books, but on reflection, am pretty happy i m not, especially in the starring role My turbulent past can stay there, thank you very much.Beyond that, Knight does well with the trials and misunderstandings of family interaction, the relationships between people that are determinedby what is not known, or acknowledged, about others, than what is It worked well in the denouement and was the basis for a relatively satisfying surprise.However, the novel had a light touch, and I was left unmoved I felt no connection to any of the characters and little real interest in what happened to them The book only took a few hours to read and as an easy distraction, it was fine It won t be a story that I remember for long

    This book surprised me in a good way I ll admit I wasn t so sure in the beginning I found the first 1 4 of this book a little confusing Once I was able to get into the flow of the novel it really did become a page turner Keep in mind that you will need to suspend your disbelief nearly throughout but if you can then it will make for a satisfying read if you like tricky psychological thrillers And the ending, while maybe a bit over the top, was completely entertaining This would make for an This book surprised me in a good way I ll admit I wasn t so sure in the beginning I found the first 1 4 of this book a little confusing Once I was able to get into the flow of the novel it really did become a page turner Keep in mind that you will need to suspend your disbelief nearly throughout but if you can then it will make for a satisfying read if you like tricky psychological thrillers And the ending, while maybe a bit over the top, was completely entertaining This would make for an excellent beach vacation read

    3.5 Psychological twisty Fast paced, the revelations keep coming and even when I was sold on one theory, another presented itself A very good suspense filled story, one where it tales a while to like any of these characters, not too sure if I ever did but it didn t seem to matter A few graphic sex scenes Didn t see the ending coming, total surprise which I have to admit I appreciated.

    Disclaimer is a great debut novel Not only is it a psychological thriller, but it is a thought provoking story about two families told from different points of view with really great character development This story shows how the main character, Catherine, has a past that comes back to haunt her and destroy the life that she knows I wavered between 4 and 5 Stars throughout The very beginning, being a 4 because it took me a little while to get into the story, but once I caught on it became ve Disclaimer is a great debut novel Not only is it a psychological thriller, but it is a thought provoking story about two families told from different points of view with really great character development This story shows how the main character, Catherine, has a past that comes back to haunt her and destroy the life that she knows I wavered between 4 and 5 Stars throughout The very beginning, being a 4 because it took me a little while to get into the story, but once I caught on it became very good and had some twists that I didn t see coming that put it in the 5 range The ending was a 4 for me I will definitely be reading Renee Knights next book Thank you to GR Friend Carol If it wasn t for her review I probably would not have purchased this novel.Oh, it took me a week to read this book because I had a lot going on It would have been much better if I hadtime to dedicate to it This book reads fast and would make a great beach read, rainy weekend or long flight read

    I ve mentioned several times before that I m not normally keen on stories set in Blighty just too close to home The settings remind me of work and the prevailing weather is normally dismal too Two things that hit the wrong note for me from the get go So the London setting of this debut novel from a former film documentary maker had ground to make up from the start However, it did kick off in interesting fashion with Catherine Ravenscroft also a film documentary maker finding a book bes I ve mentioned several times before that I m not normally keen on stories set in Blighty just too close to home The settings remind me of work and the prevailing weather is normally dismal too Two things that hit the wrong note for me from the get go So the London setting of this debut novel from a former film documentary maker had ground to make up from the start However, it did kick off in interesting fashion with Catherine Ravenscroft also a film documentary maker finding a book beside her bed only to find it to be the story of a part of her own life she s desperate to forget From this point the story is told, partly in flashback, both her her point of view and that of retired schoolteacher Stephen Brigstocke, who is introduced as a rather creepy character and whose relevance to the central narrative becomes apparent as we get deeper into the tale.In truth it is a well told story with several good twists and a decent cast of characters It held my attention to a gripping denouement and then unfortunately continued for a prolonged and unnecessary cleanup I m not quite sure what came over the author at the end as all the last section does is to dilute what was already a satisfying mystery The ending didn t quite spoil the book for me but is most definitely a case of less would have been

Catherine Ravenscroft has a seemingly happy life Married to Robert, with a young adult son and a successful film maker, she is content with how things are going But when Catherine discovers an unfamiliar book at her bedside entitled, The Perfect Stranger she is shocked by what is written The book will force her to relive an unspeakable moment in her life from 20 years ago that she hoped would be forgotten forever Catherine is desperate to find out not only how the book came into being in her house but also who wrote about something that supposedly only she and one other person who is now dead knew about.On the other side of the coin, we have Stephen Brigstocke who has had his world destroyed after the death of his young son Johnathon and wife, Nancy After going through her belongings he will come across a manuscript that detail s a secret from a women he has never met, Catherine Worse will come when he finds pictures taken by his son that will connect the two families and convince Stephen that his sons passing is because of this women What will follow is a roller coaster ride of twists and turns as Catherine s life slowly implodes until the inevitable collision course when it is clear things are not as clear cut as they seem.As a self confessed fan of psychological thrillers i can honestly say this one can bat with the best of them Combining beautiful and emotional writing with an intriguing storyline that will keep you guessing makes for an absorbing read Throw in engaging characters in Catherine and Stephen, that you can t help but be drawn to with the sadness of there pasts and the tragedy that is the present they now encounter makes for a truly hard hitting family drama that will leave you thinking well after you have read the final page

    I would have otherwise rated this as a mediocre 2 3 star thriller, decent enough to pass a summer day but nothing special Then came view spoiler the gratuitous sexual assault I ve had enough with rape as a plot device It is a cheap and lazy gimmick and the author does nothing to salvage it and can t, in a book where the characterization is so paper thin If I could have one wish, it would be to have all authors read this article hide spoiler I would have otherwise rated this as a mediocre 2 3 star thriller, decent enough to pass a summer day but nothing special Then came view spoiler the gratuitous sexual assault I ve had enough with rape as a plot device It is a cheap and lazy gimmick and the author does nothing to salvage it and can t, in a book where the characterization is so paper thin If I could have one wish, it would be to have all authors read this article hide spoiler
