  • Slow start

    Took a while to get into this book, but it got better as it went on. Quite a good "whodunnit"!

    Brilliant macabre fun. OTT at times but who cares.

  • A gripping read

    I am instantly drawn to thrillers that involve a group of close knit friends hiding a secret from their past, (in this case their involvement in the death of a woman and two children) that if threatened to be exposed could destroy the lives they have built in the time since. The difference in this one, and what makes it stand out, is that one takes the blame for them all and by doing so the others agree that they will each owe her a “favour” of her choice when she is released after serving her prison sentence. It’s the least they can do right?…. Sharon Bolton weaves an intricate tale that is slowly built up at first by setting the scene, before she releases her foot off the brake for a more thrilling and actioned pack second half. When Megan is released from prison, this is when it gets really good and the tension and suspense ramps up. The characters are all very unlikeable, entitled you know what’s, each have moved on without much thought for Megan or following through on their promise when she comes to collect, but it works in this space and doesn’t hinder the story in any way. I feel it enhances it all the more. The Pact is a thrilling and additive read that I found to be very entertaining. My first book by Sharon Bolton, she is now on my radar and I will be on the lookout for more of her work in the future.

  • Stupendously Good!

    Sharon Bolton writes an irresistible novel examining the nature of love and friendship amongst a close-knit group of young friends after the end of their A level exams. They attended the exclusive All Souls School in Oxford and are looking forward to their glittering futures, continuing their lives of privilege. But between the six of them, Xavier, Felix, Daniel, Amber, Talitha, and Megan, one makes a terrible mistake when a dare goes badly wrong. Megan offers to shoulder the blame, leaving the others free to fulfil their hopes and dreams, but they will have to pay a price for her prison stay. Twenty years later, the five have successful careers and Megan is released, but she is no longer the friend they remember, as she comes to collect on their promises. The Pact is a brilliantly plotted, twisty, atmospheric and disturbing thriller. I had a growing sense of dread as the drama, the individuals' personalities and the group dynamic are slowly revealed. This is a stupendous read that the author's fans will love. I received a complimentary copy of this novel from Orion Publishing Group via NetGalley at my request and this review is my own unbiased opinion.

    Thanks for your feedback!
