The Only Suspect: A 'twisting, seductive, ingenious' thriller from the bestselling author of The Other Passenger
About this deal
WOW. As always Louise Candlish has written a taut, unsettling, compulsive and ingenious novel with gasp-out-loud twists and fatally flawed characters forced into tragedy by circumstances. I LOVED it!
I couldn’t have asked for more, really, and feel so proud that readers are continuing to discover it and recommend it far and wide.The Only Suspect is razor-sharp in its ability to engage its reader in a fall from reality. Nothing gets me giddier than a crime fiction novel that requires the reader to use their brain and their wit to get to the conclusion. Even when I thought I had it all worked out…I was dead wrong, on every count. A crime novel, domestic in its nature and deadly in its outcome, The Only Suspect has me salivating for more novels written by Louise Candlish, she has a skill that isn’t easily replicated. Interestingly he’s surrounded by equally unlikeable characters, including a single pregnant woman Beth brings into their house. Perhaps this is another reason I didn’t engage with this part of the story. In 2008, student Martine Vik Magnussen was killed after a night out. The only suspect, the son of a billionaire, fled the UK to Yemen. Reporter Nawal Al-Maghafi is determined to speak to him. More
So disappointed in this. Was really looking forward to it. Have enjoyed many of her books (Other Passenger was fab and a fave) but this was dire. Boring and questionable storyline and it dragged on and on.Yes, yes yes, Louise Candlish, you got me again! Every single book of hers that I have read has left me gasping out loud, and The Only Suspect was no different. I could not read it fast enough, desperate to see what would happen next. It was clever and unpredictable and I just loved it. Get in the Louise Candlish train, you will not be sorry. I enjoyed Louise Candlish’s The Other Passenger, published in 2020. It proved popular, as did Our House, published in 2018 and since made into a four-part miniseries. I missed her 2021/22 book The Heights but happily dove into her latest release, The Only Suspect. Like The Other Passenger, here Candlish offers up a twisty tale with a narrator (well, two in fact) we’re not sure we can trust. The Only Suspect It soon became clear he was pretending to be deradicalised whilst encouraging terrorism online," Mr Brett added.
