I don't think there is a category of thriller that best describes the work of author Caroline England. Psychological thriller or indeed domestic noir doesn't quite cover it. If there is a word for a specialist in stories of secrets, lies and revelations, then this would place Caroline England as an expert of the highest order at the top of this field, and having read all of her books this unique style is what keeps me coming back for more.
Ellie Wilson, is a troubled soul, whose relationship with her partner Cameron Hastings, her parents, and her past is far from untroubled, all of which seems to manifest themselves in her dreams.
The pace may appear to too slow for some, but hear this, when something is put together as deliciously as this, wouldn't you want to chew it slowly to release the full flavour? This gourmet thriller fiction, is to be savoured from beginning to end.
Five (Michelin) stars from me.
