Summary

Summary

Pulled into a deadly game of deception, secrets, and lies, a woman must find the truth in order to defeat a mysterious opponent, protect her daughter, and save her own life in this dazzling standalone psychological thriller with an unforgettable ending from the New York Times bestselling author of Woman with a Secret and The Monogram Murders.

You thought you knew who you were. A stranger knows better.

You’ve left the city—and the career that nearly destroyed you—for a fresh start on the coast. But trouble begins when your daughter withdraws, after her new best friend, George, is unfairly expelled from school.

You beg the principal to reconsider, only to be told that George hasn’t been expelled. Because there is, and was, no George.

Who is lying? Who is real? Who is in danger? Who is in control? As you search for answers, the anonymous calls begin—a stranger, who insists that you and she share a traumatic past and a guilty secret. And then the caller threatens your life. . . .

This is Justine’s story. This is Justine’s family. This is Justine’s game. But it could be yours.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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.” Daily Express (London)
“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.” Independent (London)
“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.” Booklist (starred review)
“A London TV producer who’s retired to Devon to get away from it all is terrorized by a series of anonymous phone calls that mercilessly reveal every fault line in the lives of two families, one of them her own…Plenty of shivery intimations of second sight, but Hannah plots and writes persuasively enough to pull them off. Even after the last clouds have dispersed, you won’t soon forget this nightmare within a nightmare.” Kirkus Reviews
