Sophie Hannah – Perfect Little Children


The New York Times best-selling author of The Monogram Murders and Woman with a Secret returns with a sharp, captivating, and expertly plotted tale of psychological suspense.

All Beth has to do is drive her son to his soccer game, watch him play, and then return home. Just because she knows her ex-best friend lives near the field, that doesnt mean she has to drive past her house and try to catch a glimpse of her.

Why would Beth do that and risk dredging up painful memories? She hasnt seen Flora for 12 years. She doesnt want to see her today – or ever again. But she cant resist. She parks outside the open gates of Newnham House, watches from across the road as Flora arrives, and calls to her children Thomas and Emily to get out of the car.

Except…. Theres something terribly wrong. Flora looks the same, only older. Twelve years ago, Thomas and Emily were five and three years old. Today, they look precisely as they did then. They are Thomas and Emily without a doubt, but they havent changed at all. They are no taller, no older. Why havent they grown? How is it possible that they havent grown up?

Contrived. Ridiculous. Excruciatingly boring. The characters were one-dimensional and stupid. The plot was absolutely unbelievable. I actually fast forwarded through parts just to see what the explanation was. Shouldnt have bothered.
