Disclaimer by Renee Knight

I recently read and enjoyed The Girl on the Train. While I was reading it, a friend asked if I’d read Disclaimer, which she said was even better the The Girl on the Train. Better than The Girl on the Train? There’s no prizes for guessing what I read next.

The blurb on the front is enough to make you want to carry on reading: Imagine if the next thriller you opened was all about you. This is exactly what happens to Catherine, a middle-aged, successful, married woman. The book reveals her darkest secret and Catherine’s life starts to unravel. Who else has read the book? Will anyone realise it’s about her?

Not far away, a widower continues to mourn his wife and sets about sorting through her things.

Disclaimer alternates between the two characters. What is it that connects these two middle-aged people with grown up sons?

It’s not long before the story becomes really scary. Catherine knows the truth, but does the reader? As the different strands of the story are revealed, it’s hard to know what is true and what isn’t. With an ending I never could have seen coming, this is a book that keeps you guessing right until the end.

If you enjoy a psychological thriller, Disclaimer is definitely worth a read.

Better than The Girl on the Train?

  2. Oooh I have this on my To Be Read pile although it might be waiting a while, I’m reading War and Peace at the moment (yes really!) I’ve read quite a few thrillers over the last year or so and I’ve got quite into that whole ‘keep you guessing’ thing. I’m looking forward to reading this now!

    • Wow, that’s impressive! I don’t think I could face War and Peace. I’ve really got into my thrillers over the last two or three years and this one is definitely worth a read!
