A Game for All the Family by Sophie Hannah

Justine thought she knew who she was, until an anonymous caller seemed to know better…

After escaping London and a career that nearly destroyed her, Justine plans to spend her days doing as little as possible in her beautiful home in Devon.

But soon after the move, her daughter Ellen starts to withdraw when her new best friend, George, is unfairly expelled from school.  Justine begs the head teacher to reconsider, only to be told that nobody's been expelled – there is, and was, no George.

Then the anonymous calls start: a stranger, making threats that suggest she and Justine share a traumatic past and a guilty secret – yet Justine doesn’t recognise her voice.  When the caller starts to talk about three graves – two big and one small, to fit a child – Justine fears for her family’s safety.

If the police can’t help, she’ll have to eliminate the danger herself, but first she must work out who she’s supposed to be…

Peer & Press Reviews

In ‘A Game for All the Family’, Hannah manages to balance postmodern playfulness with a strong narrative drive to produce a complex, compelling brain-teaser…  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

The language in Sophie Hannah’s novels is so precise and elegantly phrased.  More noteworthy, perhaps, is her sure grasp of psychology – particularly that of her beleaguered heroines, often thrown into chaos by the effects of crime or a catastrophic misjudgement on their own part.

Financial Times

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.
