Perfect Little Children by Sophie Hannah

Highly gripping but not without flaws…

In her latest psychological thriller, Hannah examines the power of money and the question of how far a person would go to maintain a perfect facade. It has been twelve years since Beth Leeson has seen her former bestie Flora Braid after an abrupt break-up. When Beth gets a peek at Flora’s new home in the neighborhood, she comes across the latter and her two children and gets the shock of her life: it seems the children haven’t aged at all since Beth saw them twelve years ago. Unable to get over her shock, Beth sets on to find the truth behind the shocking revelation. The readers who’re familiar with Hannah’s writing style know the author’s panache for creating engrossing reads despite muddled plotlines and implausible resolutions. Perfect Little Children is no exception: while the story is thinly plotted, the final resolution comes out as incredibly unconvincing. Still Hannah’s writing style is utterly absorbing and her characters unlikable but realistic. Fans of gripping psychological thrillers will be rewarded.
